More closures

Post by Ethnic » Fri Sep 06, 2013 4:01 pm

My thoughts to those who have been told that they are to close imminently.

I await our fate.........
No good news for anyone, if aqnyone was ever in any doubt about what our employer thinks about us, this should put them all to rest. We are not thought of.

I know that Falkor has decided that it is someone elses time to provide this for us, but why has traffic stopped?

As far as I know we can still post on here - this is confirmation in itself - but where is everyone?

The least we can do to say thank you to Falkor for having given us this great forum is to ensure that it stays busy so that any potential buyer can see the value in it, not to mention the value of the forum to ourselves. Have to say that there is NO alternative site that I'm aware of. The U.S. ones are just that and the POA forum allows no cloak of anonimity - something which is priceless in the current climate for anyone who wishes open and honest discussion.

If we don't use this site, we will lose it forever in whatever form it might take.

What about anyone from the establishments that arwe closing, anything to add?

Anyone from Channings Wood like to tell us what is going on there?

Anyone..........????????

If we are all honest we dont really care as long as it aint our jail shutting.if you are picked it is end of story. No backing whatsoever from fellow staff or poa. The union is finished. We are a force no more. Shame but who of you would disagree ?.
