I am a Team Lead for a small group of 5 employees and was told that contractor support has been reduced to 3. Without even asking me, the parent company told me that to keep the customer happy my position and another have been cut. My issue is that if I am on the ground with 5 people and all of us fall under the same job position, then as the contract lead shouldn't I have been asked if the team was reduced from 5 to 3, could the others pickup other work and still satisfy the customers needs. I feel the customer and the COR being one in the same should have just simply said, lead contractor figure out who can do what to satisfy the contract. The best qualified contractor being myself was cut versus 3 less qualified people.

Were you all paid the same? Or were he two that were cut the ones making the highest rates of pay? Often companies will cut their expenses when they are told by the agency that they only need 3 people...then the 3 they keep are the least expensive ones (to them...they probably bill you all at the same rate to the agency!).

Ah the days when I was a contractor! Your lucky they even let you know ahead of time, many places they just lock out your access card and someone meets you at the entrance of the office building and tells ya that you don't work here any more.
