4.00 PM, I sighted a memo, that was circulating but had not yet been officially mailed to all staff, calling for expressions of interest of staff who were willing to accept a redundancy due to NDC Tasmania being over staffed. I immediately went to my LAN terminal and sent a mail message indicating that after sighting the memo my hand was fully extended in the upward direction as my expression of interest. Upon pushing the send button I received the mail message containing the memo.
If they are serious with offering these redundancies I consider this would be our ideal opportunity to do what we are so looking forward to, so my expressions of interest at least are very serious.
A request was made from payroll services for a figure of final payment on the basis that I would terminate employment on 30/08/2000. This statement is to be due to arrive on or about Monday the 14th.
A visit to a finance adviser at Island state at midday verified that my plans of survival until I could lay my hands on my super was in fact viable and he will pursue options which would allow me to have the arrangements that I require and have my money also work for me so that we would be even more comfortable financially.
Now it is time to wait again for an answer as to whether or not I will receive the package.
