I am a catering Manager for No 10 catering at Carlisle

Customer Question

good afternoon,
My name is Irine ******* I am a catering Manager for No 10 catering at Carlisle United Football Club,
I was Tuped over to No 10 catering on July 1st 2014
They have never at any point discussed or tried to change the contract I had with my previous employer
I have received a letter to say my job at Carlisle United is at risk of redundancy, the letter was dated 27th July 2016 but was only posted on the 29th July at 7.11pm, and they have invited me to a meeting on Wednesday August 3rd at 10.00am and can bring representation, they have explained why my job is at risk which I totally understand.
However my concern is I do not know what to do now as I have never been in this position before,
I have so many questions listed below
Have they legally given me enough notice prior to the meeting
What kind of representation can I take has I am not in a union
what do I agree to if I agree to anything
what is the legal redundancy package they should be offering me financially after 2 years with them
Can I request a reduced hour contract at the same rate of pay
Can I ask for a 40 hour contract at a fixed hourly rate
There are so many more questions I have but they are all swilling in my head
I look forward to hearing from you soon
kind regards
Irine
