To "Don't Panic"
2 x Senior EDS managers appeared at a Midlands EDS 'Town Hall' meeting recently to "rouse the troops" and spout company propaganda about the need for the publicised pay-cuts. Person after person stood up and told these puppets that they would NOT be agreeing to the pay cut and each and every one was followed by a loud "hear, hear" of approval from the audience. I really do think that EDS/HP are on a loser and I agree that the vast majority will tell the company to stick it. It will be interesting to see whether any of those that agree to the cut, ultimately end up being made redundant at the cost of someone who did NOT accept a pay cut. Time to batten down the hatches!
