This may be poor procedure because the decision was clearly made before they consulted with staff, and clearly any consultation would therefore be a waste of time, if the result was already determined. So if they now try to tell you your job is redundant, then you will need to claim a personal grievance based on the failure to consult, and the procedural failures.
Glad to help
That clause means, in my view, that you get 17 weeks salary. The pro rata term means that this is the way they divide the year and six month periods so you get the one week for six months for the half year on top of the 8 years
Sorry, I didn't read that carefully enough. It is a bit misleading, but you should get the six weeks for your first year, and then 7.5 years, or 15 weeks on top of that, being a total of 21 weeks
