Summary: Yesterday I was sent a letter approving my resignation from Sirius ‘Open Source’, two months after I had already announced that I was resigning with immediate effect; they sent an identical letter to my wife (this time, unlike before, they remembered to also change the names!!)

THIS is just an update regarding Sirius, as it sent the following yesterday; it was sent one day after the actual date of the letter (“Acceptance of your Resignation [...] Please see the attached letter.”) and to quote:

Re: Your resignation has been accepted

Dear Roy,

I write further to my letter of 9th Dec 2022 in which I asked you to reconsider your resignation and gave you a cooling off period to 16th Dec 2022. Given that I did not hear from you before the end of the cooling off period, I could only therefore assume that you did not wish to retract your resignation.

I am disappointed that you decided not to allow us the opportunity to attempt to resolve any concerns that led to your resignation, however I have to respect your decision and it is therefore with regret that your resignation was accepted, with your final day of employment being Friday 16th December.

Any accrued holidays you ha not taken will be paid in your final pay, which should have been processed in the January payment run. Your P45 will be issued as soon as possible after your final pay has been administered.

We wish you every success in the future.
Yours sincerely,

CEO, Sirius UK

As I explain in the video above, it seems like a face-saving publicity stunt from them, pretending all was amicable. We’re meanwhile investigating what happened to the pensions of all past staff; the Standard Life management is being super-evasive about it. One might assume it got plundered by Sirius management, but we’re still trying to find verifiable evidence of that. Now that British and French workers are staging massive strikes (the latter over pensions in particular) we urge people all around the world to check that their pensions haven’t been rendered scams. It seems like a trend.
