Dear Mr. Max
I am one of those who were fired from the company because of the redundancy of the job description I was given. The reason that was told me was that the other guy holding the same position as I did was with the company far longer than I am. Being the more senior man, he got the position and I was fired.
I am writing to ask you to reconsider the decision that was handed down on me. I have done my job with diligence and I feel that being removed from the company was a poor decision on the part of management. If I cannot be accepted for the same position, I can do other job descriptions as well.
I am not asking that you remove someone else just to accommodate me. I know there is always a space on the company who is willing to work long and hard in achieving the company objectives.
