surplusing
 n.— «The employees will have the opportunity to “follow the work,” as AT&T puts it, thus skirting a promise it made in its current contract with the union not to engage in “surplusing,” which is AT&T’s euphemism for layoffs.» —“8:40 a.m.: AT&T employees rally to protest job transfers” by Dan Wallach Beaumont Enterprise (Texas) Sept. 29, 2007.
