    Re: Spring Army Manoeuvres - March 21

    Long conversation/discussion about getting a new fence for the bottom of the garden. We are getting a new fence at the bottom of the garden. The excitement of it all.

    @mollyka...........rant away, pet. Makes complete sense to me what you're doing. Do you remember when it was the Personnel Department?

    Looks like the weather oop here in the North is going to be vile over the weekend so plotting about putting the gazebo up and putting the fire pit as near as possible without cooking Jennie and Ads.
    I'm nearly at the stage of saying feck them all.
    It could be worse, I could be filing.

    No Molls I would not take that lying down. Tell them you want to keep holidays or when your husband is relying on you as his carer you will be forced to apply for Force Majeure leave and they'll have to give it to you..

    Re: Spring Army Manoeuvres - March 21

    Morning all,
    Sorry to hear you are having trouble at work Molly. I have got a fight on my hands there myself now. I got a phone call with no warning out of hours yesterday, telling me that I was being automatically appointed to a position that I have no qualifications or experience and that is a 'left over' job that nobody else wanted in the mad rush. No Voluntary Redundancy like the other staff. It's either that or resign, which is probably what I will do, but not before I engage the Union, Fair Work and anyone else that I can.

    Do you get the impression that HR across the globe are using the pandemic as an excuse to railroad people into whatever they want?
    If your 8 year old self met you, would they be proud?

    Good morning everyone. So sorry to hear that Bridget and you are right not to go without a fight. It’s not just HR, think a lot of people and organisations will use it as an excuse. Yourself and Molly have the army behind you so stand for no nonsense.

    How are you today Brit? One foot in front of the other, that’s all any of us can do. Daughter in Norway getting the key of her new apartment today. Hard walking away from the life she had, would give anything to be with her but thank God for technology, I can try and keep in touch. Forwarded a suitcase of stuff to her, Xmas presents she had no place to take back with her last time, tea bags etc. It arrived yesterday and in one piece. Had my walk, now have to do the dreaded grocery shop.

    Thanks Rusters -- it is lovely to have somewhere to safely come and blow our tops anyway! I'm glad your daughter is moving on.. my daughter had a broken relationship in Canada some years back and she couldn't move on - I went over to Canada to bring her home -- she had just gotten her citizenship but she happily left it behind and now lives next door to me... much better your daughter coping with her situation... I always feel Jilly gave up a lot.. not that I'm not delighted she's home but the opportunities she had in Canada would have been amazing... anyway --- it's old news now!

    Indeed I know about Force Majeure - unfortunately in our contract we can only take 3 days of FM in 3 years -- after that we have to PLEAD for unpaid leave and not guaranteed to get it... apologies to you cos I know you were HR back in the day -- but jesus - in both my employments the HR dept. people were frankly horrible -- not only had they no empathy regard the rules -- they had none full-stop -- they consider everyone but themselves as losers it feels!!

    Oh Bridge that sounds so unfair... so are they doing you out of a redundancy package? and yes -- I do believe HR are using it as an excuse -- they are getting away with everything -

    Trying to be even-handed about this tho -- I'm in a very privileged position - I'm in a job that in truth I can't WFH - but I get paid - so I don't really have any problem with my employer as such (the governement) just the obnoxious individuals who think they are shocking important in a poxy little county council... my own lovely immediate boss was on to me this morn. and she just said let it go and if I need time off she'll sort out something... dunno what it means - but I'll stick with that!!

    Morning all -- no more moaning from me!!!
