A peer of mine is leaving for a new role and I am going to be picking up a small team. Two managers (directs) and around 5 team members. Speaking with my manager my aim is to wind the work down - spread it across rest of our org (save resource where possible) and stand the whole team down.
They wont lose their job as the company will find other work for them but they will be very unhappy with it.
Any advice on how to approach this? I can't be up front with them for policy reasons, union and it might impact the chances to reduce.
