Union? Which union would that be then? You seem to be in the know here.


Irrelevant, as an employer you are only privy to an employees union status if they wish to disclose such with you. An employer can not force that information out.

But seeing as you aren’t my employer and I’m not your employer my union of choice is not up for discussion on a public forum.

Don’t want to interrupt oaksoft embarrassing himself, but (dependent on notice period of the person leaving, and the nature of the role you’re trying to fill) it can be incredibly hard to:

1. Get the right approval

2. Submit the job advert and wait the allocated time before starting interviews

3. Conduct interviews

4. Submit an offer and have the person accept, then provide the required documents and get a starting date set that is at the end of their current notice period

5. Have them start and then train them up on something specific 

... within a few weeks. Might be different with smaller companies but in my experience in large companies it will generally take the best part of 3 months to replace someone for a skilled position. I agree it’s incredibly frustrating but completely understand the manager’s frustrations in this scenario.

Surely you don't need all that when the job involves selling tat out of a suitcase at the Barras?

Unite for me. From the day I left school (T&G days included)

Not sure what your point is. That guy has done very well for himself and his business is still going strong.

In fairness to [mention=8416]oaksoft[/mention], people get sacked for doing f**k all in the construction industry every day.....
The type of people you are on about tend to be self employed. Plenty of that goes on for that reason. The guys who do it know they can be emptied anytime.

Oaksoft is talking about having actual employees and somehow being able and willing to treat them outwith any sort of reasonable spirit, or indeed employment law.

He also seems to believe there is nothing his fictional employees could do about it when in reality it would be entirely within their rights to unionise and take him to task. Its not even difficult to do.

FFS I was asking you which union you thought employees of mine would be part of. You were the one making claims about their union membership.

Why the f**k would I want to know what YOUR union was?🤣🤣

Not sure fictional employees need a union.

I don't think anyone is following you.

There's no point spelling out what the Armstrongs allegorise regarding your singular view of employment and business in general, as you'll just relapse into "I've no idea what that word salad was".

Plenty out there, although if they had sense they would work for someone else. But going by probability that you don’t own your own business, either that you count your hand as your employee...and call your weak hand your sub contractor you absolute w****r
