Information About Vodafone Redundancies
Connect is aware of the major reorganisation announced yesterday by Vodafone.
This reorganisation will have a significant impact across the business and may result in the loss of 450 roles.
Connect understands that a reorganisation is proposed in Regional Operations and we will be seeking an early meeting with the company to understand the implications of this.
At the same time we are aware that a number of individuals have been impacted directly in Regional Operations. Those ‘at risk’ of redundancy will have now been individually informed.
Members may also be aware that across the business there appear to have been a number of dismissals not for the purposes of redundancy timed to coincide with these ‘at risk’ announcements. Connect has made it clear to the company that this is completely unacceptable and will be raising this in the strongest terms in the discussions within the bargaining unit.
As your recognised union Connect will meet to kick off a meaningful consultation process with the company at the earliest opportunity. In doing so we will need to represent the views of our members. Please contact one of your Connect representatives with your comments.
Very suspicious that there appear to have been “Dismissals” at the same time as a redundancy exercise.
