So for the past few months at work the flow of jobs coming in has reduced to a trickle, and in consequence I've spent a lot of time having my hours cut by management as well as finding increasingly inventive ways of wasting time while looking busy. OK, so there have been slow periods before, right? Nothing to worry about. But it kept dragging on and on. Oh, we'd have a good week or two in a month, but me and my colleagues would keep running out of work. Seems like all that Brexit business has resulted in a weakening of the pound which has caused the parallel distribution of medications to slow down significantly. So today at work management called a meeting, and announced that they would be getting rid of the night shift. Earlier last week they had been going round asking if we available full time or part time. They also announced that there would be redundancies, although who stays and who goes is apparently unknown at this juncture. So, redundancy. This is new. For me. If I get shafted I'll have a week's notice as I'm on a zero-hours contract. I suppose this is the point where I ask for tips and advice, and possibly commiserations, should they turn out to be necessary.
