Well after fighting the impossible with what is going on in the world and in the automotive sector we got told tonight that the company is closing our other UK facility and there will also be redundancy's at the facility where I work.

No numbers announced yet but this will cover all departments.

Oh the joy of covid 19 and Brexit have really buggered us over.

Thanks Jamie.

I think all people in the automotive supply chain could see this coming at some point, I was hoping the work we do for the medical industry may save us but it has not worked out like that.

Hopefully we will find out the numbers this week.

Sorry to read this mate. Hope everything works out for you.
Emily my partner was made redundant back in July. But luckily found a new job a week before her leaving date.

So much change is yet to come I suspect, I guess all we can do is go with the flow.

Well I have avoided the dreaded redundancy but will only feel really save after the 21st as appeals are being heard over the next few weeks but I do feel confident I will be okay now thank goodness.

Horrible situation what is going at my place as we have seen a lot of friends going from all 3 shifts.

A few things are used for the metrics, Time & attendance, Quality notifications, Open disciplinary's, Skill sets, Core behaviours, PDR (personal development reviews) scores for the last 12 months.

Don't get me wrong a lot of the people picked to go have made their beds over the last 12 months and now they have to live with their actions but there are some that will be leaving that have not done a lot wrong but the cuts needed are very deep (half the workforce) and it has encroached on some of the better people.

Things not looking great, more infections and not enough testing, hard to know where we are going with this.

I think there's capacity to manage and deal with this, but not if too many people just ignore all the warnings about how to do things safely and that's what is starting to go wrong now.

We have 5 people off at the moment as the schools have sent their children home for showing symptoms and the whole families are in self isolation, The two I have spoken to have said that their child coughed twice and was sent home, All have had the tests but are waiting for the results.

My daughter was off school last Thursday / Friday (year 4). When she went back on Monday we apologised for her not being in school, the teacher hadn't even relised she wasn't there! Like WTF are the teaching staff doing then? We were so worried she would still have a residual cough or something but heard nothing from the school. Whereas a friend of ours has a daughter who started year 1, she contacted the school, told them the girl had just got over a cold and was told she couldn't attend school until she had a clear Covid-19 test, again WTF. A cold is NOT Covid jesus. Not only that she couldn't find a place closer than 2 hours driving time to get a test done, what an effing joke this all is.
