Just had the formal company announcement that I am now at official risk of redundancy. (Previously, I was just at risk of the risk, if that makes sense).
Had seen this coming a mile off, but it feels odd that it's now actually happened.
There now follows a month's individual consultation, commencing next week, so still won't be going before 25th July, at the earliest. There's still a vanishingly small chance of a last minute reprieve, but not very likely at all.
My two former colleagues I mentioned yesterday are also on their way to the door. A whole team of three, scrapped in one afternoon. We probably have over 60 years' experience between us - more than 20 years each. Gone!
I don't know if I would have wanted to stay; I've really been growing to hate it recently, and the future for those staying doesn't look great. But now's a terrible time to be both ill and unemployed.
Don't have a mortgage, so that's alright. Won't be homeless at least. But will have to make do on a lot less.
