You would think that staffing levels on stations are as low as they can possibly go, but there are always some managers who seem to think that they can pick one or two more bones off the skeleton.
The local Area Manager wants to replace a full-time CSM post and a part-time CSS post with a single full-time CSS post. This would, of course, displace people out of their jobs, reduce the number of staff on duty at particular times of the week, block a promotion opportunity and increase coverage problems. But hey, it would save a bit of money, so our intrepid AM remains undaunted.
What can stop this cut in jobs? An organised fightback, that's what.
