At risk in SDS?

In August the company notified employees in the Service Desk Solutions (SDS) unit within End User Systems of proposed headcount reductions.  The company did not envisage any redundancies but asked SDS employees to seek redeployment to yield the required reductions (approximately 30 out of 100).
UNITE reps want to be able to advise and support all of our members who are currently working in SDS and who have been put in this position.  To do this we need to ensure we have a full list of members ‘in scope’.
If you’re one of those in scope please use the voting button to let us know, or if you can’t see the voting button reply to this email with “In Scope: SDS”.
We understand the company is now offering some people Compromise Agreements as a means of reducing SDS headcount.  Members in SDS or anywhere else should contact a rep without delay if they find themselves in this situation.
If you have colleagues in scope who are not union members, please encourage them to join.  Remember that Unite are currently offering £25 in vouchers to any member who recruits a new member who joins online – see here for details.

Industrial action is currently suspended but the fight continues.
