Redundancies - archaeologist - 19th December 2008

Is it within the AUP to ask for accurate reports of redundancies - ie. name of company, how many, what positions and when? I hear this and that on the rumour mill but few hard facts - often a mixture of passed on gossip and speculation, third- or fourth-hand. (This often seems the way in archaeology.)I know we are in difficult times and I know that many jobs have been lost and many more will go (my own is in doubt) - but where can I go for the blunt facts?

The data may be interesting - are there regions that are particularly badly hit and others where the impact is less? Which jobs are going - diggers? post-ex? managers? all? Are some companies faring better than others? If so why? Etc......

Apologies if this has already been addressed.
