The key to redundancy is that there must be a genuine reason for the role being disestablished, and they they must then consult properly with you. If they take these steps then they can decide to make you redundant, but if the work is being done by someone else, but with a new label, you are right to query this as possibly not genuine. The consultation must give you the opportunity to be heard and listened to, but they dont have to adopt any suggestions.
So the questions are whether this is a genuine redundancy, and what consultation they propose to discuss this.
