Hello, I work for IT in a large Media group and my boss

Resolved Question:

Hello,

I work for IT in a large Media group and my boss is putting me on a performance management. Their excuses are that they went looking for 360 feedback and customers apparently said that they do not feel comfortable when I am on production shift amongst other things although I have been on this shift for 2 years plus. We went through redundancy in the beginning of the year and lost more than half our team. We were 2 service managers and the CTO hired 1 more and promoted a shift lead to join us as a service manager as well. Although we complained that the rota was too much we decided that we needed to created another one, so I did and sent it to the CTO. NO reply. I often worked 2 weeks of night shifts and a weekend which burned me out mentally. I complained and was told ''why are you stressed, we fix everything now, not much is going on". Since then one of the service managers last promoted was promoted again to Head of service management. The CTO asked me to put a date into his calendar to do a Career progression plan for me , it was cancelled twice so I moved it forward. It was then that the CTO changed it to a performance management plan. We had our meet and he presented me with a list of tasks he explained is necessary to improve the perception I pass to IT and the customer. I have not signed for it but feel that I have been setup to fail. the companies way for loop holing constructive dismissal.
I need your help. where to from here.
Some of the things on his list is to stand up and do a presentation to all of IT. Do lots of Documentation etc.
