  1. thanks for this ...they will not for sure do ageancy staff ..they have 16 other staff to do the cover - another carer walked out this week ..... i have decided to go in tomorrow and hand my resignation in ......thanks for replys
  2. there is no contracted hrs on the contract .....ever....its just that they have obliged in giving me 30+ hrs over the 4 yrs - at times i have had less depending on client etc (mobile care ) ..... so loss of client etc / = loss of hrs ... in my contract it still states that i do a weeks notice ...i was never given a copy of the new/updated one ( one A4 ) i signed but they said they did give me a copy - now they wont give me a copy due to data ha ha
  3. quote /Are you under an obligation to accept the hours offered, or does the contract say its your choice? = it states neither - they have always give me appx 30 hrs ...sometimes ive done 40 for them ...becsuse they know am leaving they are tring to issue me with disaplinary this friday ...i have yet to put my notice in . contracts were changed from a weeks notice to a month in 2011 - we signed and never got a copy of that what we signed ...they say they gave us a copy and did not .....now they say thjey cannot give us a copy as it breaks data protection....
  4. hi i have worked for this job for 4 years i have a contract wth 0 ( zero ) hours - so the weekly rota can be 28 / 30/34 hrs as and when over a fixed 4 days .( in the contract it states neither a zero hrs or any given hrs ) i want to leave i have signed my contract which states to give the 1 month notice - what could happen if i dont give 1 month - thanks
  5. thanks for above post ..i have spoken to the manager and was not interested in cancelling...im goingto write to head of leisure services... but harlands have accepted my payment....and taken off the charge......so i will pay and just get rid of the contract in 2 mths
  6. thanks very much for the clear advise....thats what i will do tomorow when i ring.... watch this space....
  7. ok this is where im up to now as of 15th jan.... on 5th jan i recieved a ltter from Harlands stating that the d/d had failed and thy require the payment of 1 mths gym membership + 20£ admin fee due to the unpaid amount for the january. ( i owe 3 mths left jan /feb / march ) thy say i have to ring them by 19th to discuss the '' payment of £44 which includes 1 mth + admin fee..... i am able to pay 1 mth ( januarys) ..... so i will ring them but i will not reinstate any d/d - ---- im going to ask for the admin fee to be taken off and in due course will pay feb and march...and THEN close the gym membership what do u reckon ??????
  8. thanks for all replys..... will not re-instate the d/d and will offer them 10 per month and see what happens...
  9. yes its states overleaf 12 payments ( written on by the clerk ) so i reckon we gotta do the 12 right ????? we can apply for a max 3 mth freeze - thats an option ? but then i have to re-instate both d/debits ?
  10. i have just rang harlands and spoke to someone - she says i have to go to the gym to apply for a freeze - there are no hardship cases.... ''i asked her .......so if your in complete hardship and cannot afford the money to pay the fees you will see people go under in hardship and into debt'' ? she replied.....'' yes'' with that i hung up.... going back to the t&c's section 6 = the agreement is with oldham council gym and not harlands /was never informed that a 2nd party would be collectin monie via d/debit or otherwise - on the direct debit form it just states - pay oldham community leisure !!

Your membership will be extended by one month each payment. Each payment made is not refundable under any circumstances. This Renewal Direct Debit Payment Amount may only be amended if we advise you in writing giving 30 days notice. Please note – If your membership included the benefit of a Free Period then we will stop making collections during that Free Period and recommence making collections when this free period has finished. 11. During this Renewal Period the only way to cancel your membership is by cancelling your Direct Debit Mandate directly with your Bank. GENERAL TERMS 12.
