Retrenchment cannot be done on a pick and choose basis. The principle of 'last come first to go' applies otherwise such retrenchment will be invalid and illegal. If there are disciplinary issues concerning these employees, then you may have to go for disciplinary action. Let me speak on the basis of my experience, you don't have to take action against all, pick the weakest among them
in terms of the capacity to resist and take quick action, it will serve as a warning to others and many would fall in line.

I agree with @KK!HR, You can't retrench them just like that because the policy of Last come first out will apply else it will be illegal. You can take the disciplinary action against them. Please select one weakest person give the notice and build the substantial documents then you can take the action after domestic enquiry. It may helpful to handle others easily.
