"1500 staff over 3 years through natural wastage".
Shouldn't be a problem for Bmi. They cannot keep staff there for that long anyway. I would guestimate that about 70+% of Bmi staff have been there for less than 2 years. It's about that point when people get sick of being treated like sh!t, working 18 hour days with no break, being TOLD your shift pattern is being changed in 2 weeks time whether you like it or not without even being consulted on the matter, being told the company will pay £10 towards your xmas party and 2 years later they still ain't coughed up and thats just for starters....
........... and for the flight/cabin crew being rostered to work 4 sectors on a day only to get back after your last sector thinking your going home only to be told that you are going to DUB
and nightstopping - ruining any plans you had for after work in that life you actually do have, not getting a roster until 2 weeks before if your lucky, not being able to have leave when YOU want it, only when the company tells you when you can have it.
Thats probably why Bmi staff don't smile too much - would you if you had to put up with that at work day in day out ?.
