Index Littlewoods workers have been fucked over!

so some of you may know i work for index, today the barclay brothers have announced that 3,200 jobs will be cut as it is being sold off to Argos.

It was odd how i found out, i was sitting at a till, doing cack paperwork when a bbc reporter come up and asked me how i feel about losing my job? Which was a wee bit shocking. The management denied this and i was given a memo telling me to keep my mouth shut on the health of sales and investment etc.

The union office was closed today, but i hope that they fight the cuts. And im goign to try and get some colleugues to organise so that we all get full redundancy pay. As 9/10 wont!

Shit... Well good luck fighting it. Try and make the best of a bad situation and make it something for WMA to organise around.

Yeah learned about this on deadline day for freedom, so didn't have time to do a proper article on it.

Its gonna be a slow process though, still in consultation period, which can last upto 6 months according to usdaw.
