    Default my work are numpties!!

    Got called into a meeting today to be told that my store is getting a refit starting 30th may for a month and that i have to complete a lot of pre refit work before it starts. ok i thought. then i get told my holidays at end of may and beginning of july may need to be cancelled and i need to work 14 x 12 hour shifts starting 30th of may.
    They seemed a weee bit shocked when i told them where to go I said i would help out but i had plans pvs etc so would still be taking my weekend off and theres no chance i'm giving my holidays up. chancing gits. 'oh but you need to be in its your department and you need to team lead things' nearly said to sit and swivel but remained polite!!

    Graeme.. whats in your contract mate??

    If it's hours as required you're stuffed.. otherwise they cannot impose un-reasonable conditions ( ie hours) upon you.. 14 straight 12 hour day's..I'd have told them to shove it as well.. ( say's the man who does 12's as basic )

    its basically a fixed contract with set hours but theres a bit in it saying that due to my job role i need to be flexible according to the needs of the business. I do want the overtime just not when i have plans and as i say theres nicer ways of asking which usually get better results from folk.

    Still looking at the possitives the OT will pay for the petrol for me coming down to pvs and maybe a mod or 2!!

    Mind you when i was still a manager i once did a 23 hour shift and still got asked questions as to why i was leaving before the visiting director had walked round my department needless to say i just walked out at that point anyway.

    Totally understood..Have they agreed to be 'flexible' and meet you over your prior commitments (PVS etc)..

    If not it constituts unreasonable conditions imposed..

    Took an employee law course..Such is the strife of being an emplyer..
