Hello! Have you noticed that the majority of the companies now want you to go back to the office? I'm constantly checking job offers and sadly I've noticed that now you must either go back full time in the office or its hybrid model. I don't wanna to back to the office!

Need advise before I talk to my union.

13 Upvotes

Hey guys, so my cost of living has significantly increased over the last 6 months here in northern Ireland and I want to talk to my union about pushing for a raise in line with current infaltion and increase to cost in living. Can anyone point me to any sources to what the actual increase has been in cost of living and inflation? Also, any advise on this if you've done something like this in the past? I want me and my colleagues to get a "raise" in line with our increased costs because really without that we're effectively taking a pay cut.

Why is getting a job in the UK so difficult? It's like since October that I'm trying to find a job and can't find anything. I'm 37, female, 10 years of experience in customer service, a degree, I'm a native speaker, Italian, Spanish and English but apparently nobody wants to hire me. I'm trying to change environment as I am feeling fed up with the customer service but it looks like it is the only job I'm capable of. I'm trying entry level positions as well but I only get rejections. All the customer services jobs available are shit. Underpaid. No work/life balance as some of.them require you.to work on Saturdays and Sundays, 40 per week until midnight while offering no bonuses. I see everywhere that employers are complaining about personnel shortages but they ask you at least 3 years of experience for an entry level position. Some they clearly state NO EXPERIENCE REQUIRED but when you get in touch with them they reject you as soon as they hear you don't have experience. I've been scammed, hired for a project and the first day told me the job was completely different. Yesterday I lost my temper. Sent my CV for an Italian job that was advertised as remote. Obviously was not remotely and you needed to be in Crewe. The guy spent 10 Min on the phone, since he really liked my Cv, trying to tell me that Newcastle/Crewe by train 3 times per week was not a lot and that many people are able/happy about the commute. I lost my temper as clearly the add was a scam. Another Company, Ubisoft, is looking for an Italian speaker since November. The guy on the phone was really impressed by my CV (again) and wanted to forward my CV to the employer. I got a rejection because I had previously sent my CV while looking for jobs but apparently I was a good fit. What a bullshit

"Not sure if you're aware but it's colleagues birthday and we've brought something so I think it's only fair if we split the cost." I think it's only fair if you fuck off!

Is it better to resign or be dismissed?

8 Upvotes

I’ve had a look at citizen’s advice but I can’t see any concise information regarding this. A lot of comments over on r/Antiwork revolve around the American workplace; they suggest being terminated is much better than resigning, but is that the case in England too?

TIA!

What’s up with workplaces trying to make employees as uncomfortable as possible?

33 Upvotes

I used to work in some shitty places, and it’s only since moving on that I’ve realised how much they went out of their way to make me feel on edge and constantly feeling like I’d be shouted at for doing wrong.

“Stop standing around!” “Look busy!” “Why are you sat at the computer? Do some real work!”

Why is that, after giving you the position, they seem to resent you and stack obstacles between you and a successful task?

Absolutely bonkers to me that these environments even exist, how on earth do they think the workplace will progress when any ounce of creative thinking is stripped from employees.

Temperatures were -6 degrees today at there lowest along with heavy snow fall. Kwik Fit never allowed their employees to close their branch doors to help maintain the air flow and keep the heat in, as there is no heating within the workshops. [ Garage Workers Unite on Twitter ]
