Did anyone see this programme last night ? http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b06nzl76/hughs-war-on-waste-episode-1 It was really good and I was shocked to see the unnecessary waste not just by households but by Supermarkets and Fast Food Chains. Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall has a blog where he encourages us to help force Supermarkets to reduce the waste. https://wastenotuk.com/ He interviewed a Parsnip farmer and was astonished to see how many of these were rejected because they were "cosmetically challenged" . Apparently the Farmer had a contract with Morrisons and they set the standards for the parsnips. The Farm was barely covering its costs - Morrisons refused to speak to the programme. They later ended their contract with the Farmer because they spoke out on TV. Hugh took the "cosmetically challenged" parsnips and set up a stall outside a Morrison's Store - where he asked the opinion of Morrison Shoppers as to whether they would buy/use the parsnips - they all said they would. He later went to an amazing recycling Centre where a few recycling sceptics were given a tour to see how stuff was recycled and then the end waste used to make bicycles, clothes, furniture. Next week he is going to look at the amount of perfectly useable clothes that are being thrown away. A very interesting programme.
Hi All, Well had the following news from my employer today called me, at present i drive a van all around the UK full time contract, my employer to called and has informed me that due to the increased costs in running the delivery service from their northern warehouse, they will be moving the delivery service to the area to which most delivery are being complete ( London ). They will be sending the vans down to London full time, and they will be employing drivers from the London area to do the job which iam currently doing ( big shock ). Can an employer treat me like this i have never been sick off work and been full time for 19 months. Their are about 10 drivers who have been called regarding this matter and so far the employer has refused to even offer the work to its current staff. 1, Can the employer make me redundant 2, Is the employer breaking the law making me redundant with out offering me a move. 3, I get paid monthly what notice do they have to give. just so upset the way they called, not even sorry they state is down to costs, however we feel they are just rail roading the drivers out of work. Again i asked if we could take the london driving work and they refused to disscuss the matter any more. we are now waiting for the letter stating your finsihed. Just can not be right the way they are treating me and the others. Can anyone help regarding this matter. Cheers
