Never been through this before
It's nothing to do with Covid and it's 'only' my second job, but still.....
My second job is as a caretaker in a school for kids with behavioural problems. I work there 25 hours a month (6.25 hours a week) , the cleaner locks up the school and an agreement was in place that someone would open the school due to my working hours at my main job. My 25 hours a month is spent on maintenance, legionella water checks, fire lighting checks, etc.
Now, they have decided they need a caretaker to be there 1.25 (1 hour, 15 minutes) hours a day to open up the school, etc., therefore my role has become redundant
It takes less than 15 minutes to open the door, switch off the alarm and switch the lights on
It's only a small school. This leaves the new caretaker with just 1 hour a day to do all the work the school asks to be done.
I'm in a 'consultation' period now, after having a meeting with my managers on Tuesday.
It'll be the first time in years that I'll be down to just the one job!
I'm disappointed as they've had about 5 years of faithful service from me - never been off sick, etc.
I'm employed by the local council authority and my managers are disappointed too. They can't find me other work, due to the flexibility of this job and my working hours at my main job
I just hope it ends up as one of those situations where 'you miss what you had when it's gone' as it'll be hard for the new caretaker to do what I used to when they are only available an hour a day
