yes - answer calls in the general office - to fill in for their lack of bodies in general office. MItie is the company that provides messengers. My colleague and me work for a courier firm called Citysprint but we're based 'on-site' at the clients. There are no problems with us or the way we've worked for 5 years. They say this will help us but it just doesn't, it just allows them to let 2 messengers on 30k plus retire and not be replaced - whilst we work for less than 20k - and are expected to pcik up the slack.
Not all of the responsibility, but some of them. They retired from Mitie. I don't work for Mitie so can't really ask their boss why they are not being replaced. It's an obvious cost saving for them. Because the Mitie contract is worth a lot to citysprint - Cityspint want to do whatever pleases Mitie - but me and my colleague are furious we're being treated in this way.
yes - initially we were asked for feedback on the proposal - were both heavily against it because it makes no logical sense to split up 2 people that have been working as a team. There was a meeting between our bosses and Mitie's bosses - that resulted in "Well, we're going to have to trial it" - my boss says he agrees with us but has his hands tied.
do i do this via HR? - the problem being that I have no real power - if they want to push me out they will/can. Thanks for your advice, I think I'm best looking for a new job altogether.
