This was apparently what both sides had been waiting for - the official approval from MDA. That was why the 'dreaded list' had been held back for so long because MDA did not give the go-ahead for it to be released. At least finally, almost 3 months after the merger news was announced, we will know our fate soon..which is tomorrow. All employees would have received smses at abt 8pm today, to be at the office promptly at 8.30am where I'm sure a speech will be delivered and the crucial news on our job status given to us. Weird that they didn't send a mass email out instead but I guess not everyone was at the office so it was better to just sms. Not sure how it will be done but it should be a one to one session.. Both Mediaworks and Mediacorp would most likely have a press release on the result of the staff rationalisation exercise.
Not sure how to feel..on one side, I'm relieved that we will all know the outcome soon. On the hand, I'm feeling both afraid and sad..coz I'm really don't know whether I'll still be employed from Jan onwards and sad coz the company will cease to exist soon and it is most likely that us colleagues won't be working together as a team soon..
Well..our fates have been decided so we just have to wait till tomorrow to find out :P
I REALLY WANNA STAY EMPLOYED!
