Just when you thought it could not get worse... sneering public school bully and ultimate filthy rich shitbag Osbourne announces a £10 billion extra cut in Welfare at Tory conference and brings in a scheme where workers throw away their employment rights for a tiny amount of shares. But as a low grade civil servant a leaked document from the Cabinet Office was like a punch in the face! I had to read it again to make sure it was not an elaborate hoax so as to get more public sector workers on the TUC March next Saturday. Not only the savage cuts, a pay freeze and paying more for a pension for less, but now on top of all that they want to rip up our terms and conditions within a year!
"Detailed plans to cut holidays, lengthen working weeks and reduce flexible working for 450,000 public employees have been disclosed for the first time in leaked Cabinet Office documents.
A letter sent to every human resources director across the civil service, and seen by the Guardian, outlines the scope and speed of the coalition government's planned reforms and how they would affect staff.
By the end of this year, directors in every Whitehall department are expected to have examined the terms and conditions of their workforce and outlined plans to make their jobs more like those in the private sector.
The documents reveal several aspects of working life as susceptible to radical change, including employees' annual leave, occasional days' leave, sick pay, hours of work, the ability of employees to move from one job to another and probationary periods.
Managers have also been ordered to review policies including the family-friendly scheme of flexitime, travel and expenses, disciplinary procedures and performance management. The letter applies to staff below the level of senior civil servants."
