"After the abolition of the ENG-LINK departments in ALPHA and the dismissal 38 our colleagues, after the abolition of the ENG department in OPEN and the removal there as well 21 our colleagues the dance of dismissals… continues.
The week that just ended took place 4 new redundancies in ALPHA. 3 Technicians and 1 Administrative. Almost one layoff a day. At this station we are already counting 42 redundancies and no one knows where they will stop.
