  1. Ah,my annualised contract,this thing changes depending on which way the wind is blowing that day Nights were introduced last year,been working there since 2010,no mention of nights in my contract only that I've got to work 37.5 hours from Sunday to Saturday
  2. You may have a point about not being suited to nights although I don't fancy looking for another job at my age as I was hoping this one would see me through to retirement
  3. I paid for the note I gave my employers. I'll have another chat with my doctor to see if anything else can be done. Well i wouldn't say fighting fit as my left shoulder is going the same way as my right,I'm having injections in the left at the same time has having my right shoulder looked at. I've tried 'reasoning' with my employer saying I'll do 1 in 10 night shift but they not interested.They're worried if they let one person off then it'll open the flood gates!
  4. Trust me I've tried everything but it's the pain I get in both shoulders that stops me from sleeping,more so during the day.My condition doesn't effect my work but the lack of sleep is making me ill when I do nights.I can get by,just,on the 6/2 , 2/10 shifts but these nights have just killed me.Thanks for your reply.
  5. Hi all,hope someone can give some advice on this. Here's a brief history,I had a subacromial decompression operation back in Dec.2014,I returned to work in Feb.2015,by this time they had introduced a night shift on a rota of 1 in 9 weeks aswell as the 6/2,2/10 shift.I managed to do 2 night shifts in 2015,by the end of 2015 my shoulders have gotten worse and sleeping has become more difficult,averaging 5/6hrs of interrupted sleep each night. This year they have increased the night shift rota to 1 in 5 weeks,I did my first one at the beginning of January where i averaged 3hrs sleep per
  6. The 'unlawful' bit is I can't remove my PPE as I'm on the factory floor.
  7. Thanks for the reply sidewinder,we have a 30 unpaid break where we are allowed to use the proper canteen and 2 x 10 min breaks,these are the ones they want us to take on the factory floor
  8. The company are forcing me/work colleagues to use a 'makeshift' rest area consisting of a couple of tables pushed together and 4 chairs on the factory floor where we work as they say it takes to long to go to the proper canteen upstairs. The environment is noisy with machines running/radio on etc. I've challenged this stating the fact I can't remove my PPE in this 'rest area' as it's still on the factory floor as per HSE ,'facilities for rest and eat meals' as I'm on my feet most of the day and I like to take my boots off when I get the chance as my feet ache etc. http://www.
  9. Cheers Emmzzi,not what I wanted to hear but guess I'll just have to suck it up.
  10. That's not the point,I've done my 37.5 hrs during the week,the question is can I be forced to work the extra if I don't want to? No I don't Sidewinder
  11. Hi,Hope someone can help me with a little problem I/we are experiencing at work. I work an annualised contract,my working week is from Sunday to Saturday,37.5 hrs a week.Currently we're working Monday to Friday on a 2 shift rota pattern and have been for the last 3yrs.Problem I'm having as are a few others is that we're being 'forced' to work a Sunday even though we have worked the 37.5 hrs already.I've been threatened with a 'absence' and then a disciplinary if I don't work the Sundays My contract states: It is a condition of your employment that you work flexibly in accordance w
  12. Thanks for the reply Andy. Well a bit of good news,rung the mortgage provider yesterday and they said because the debt isn't 3yrs old and/or over £300 they won't take any action.No doubt I'll get a letter from simarc charging me for the letter to the mortgage provider!!
  13. Thanks Andy,looks like they've covered all the bases,the Summary of Rights is printed on the reverse of my letter. I know it's my own fault but how can they justify £50 for what amounts to a letter
  14. Thanks Andy for the reply.I've been in touch with the JSA and they did pay my ground rent with my dole like you said but I didn't realise they did this Simarc are the property management company who I'm dealing with and they could have sent me a demand last year but I may just have ignored it thinking that the JSA would pick the bill up,my mistake again. I've just read my lease agreement,sorry no scanner,it basicly says that if after 21 days(same applies for 3 months)the ground rent hasn't been paid then they can come onto&enter the property and I quote "to hold & enjoy & rece
  15. Evening all. As the title suggests I have a problem with the company that deals with our ground rent. Just a brief history of what has happened so far. Last year I was unfortunate to be on the dole.Ground rent demand came in for 2010 and the dole said they would pay for this so I thought that was the end of the matter until a few weeks ago I got a demand for last years ground rent and 'administration' costs bunged on top of that,brought the total to £105,£55 ground rent,the rest charges.Not one for forking out money willy nilly I emailed the management company to ask for a breakdown of t
