    Default The chop

    I heard today that the company and department i work for are having a big chop due to a canceled euro 60 Million order and a major drop in microchip production in Asia.
    I made a couple of calls to find out whats going on but with the time difference not to quite the right people.
    I heard 35 people will be going in the next 12 weeks.
    Thats about 50% of the department.

    Well I've talked to 2 people that have had a email saying their jobs are safe. One with the company 6 month and the other 1 1/2 year.
    I've done 6 year, But i never got a email.
    Does this mean I'm for the chop or are they keeping the most experienced people.??????
    Nothing this company does surprise's me anymore.
    I just don't have a bl00dy clue really and it's doing my head in.
    I need to wait about another 8hrs to speak to my boss and see whats going on.

    Another sleepless night for me.

    Sorry to hear Shan.

    Your contract/terms should state all what they can, or can't do? Hope you find something quickly.
