Many thanks for the comments, they are most appreciated, if not all that encouraging. Just to clarify...
If for example me and xxx both run a department of 5 people and we're at at the same reporting level. Do note that we're both hands-on so all 12 of us do similar stuff, just me and xxx get extra strategy, planning, purchasing and negotiating work. All 10 workers are made redundant. The new owners then have me work for him without all the old responsibilities, plus he immediately throws his most hated workload at me (which he's said is his plan). You're saying that basically I'm just screwed, and would have been better off made redundant in Administration (which won't happen, I can do too many things no-one else can)?
I understand we'll all be TUPE'd over (there's only 27 of us left from 130).
Is the assumption they'd tell me what the new job is first or TUPE me over and then tell me, and does it make a difference?
