Was told restructuring department. Affecting around 15 people.
Total change of job, job title, hours. Ask them about hours, nothing could be done. 2.5 hours earlier with new job. Also a clause saying work on call may be needed. So hours could be 6-2200.
Also training for new job. And my job now that they stated would be redundant would be given to a supervisor making a few dollars more an hour.
They gave me a letter for a package and put reason for dismissal personal reasons. Which was never discussed. I only mentioned that getting up at 430 Am wasn’t good for my health.
