  1. I probably did not phrase it right, I meant at no overtime rate, just normal rate.
  2. Everyone is contracted for 35 hours, but ever since I have been there everyone has done more, as stated above. In our contracts it says " you maybe required to work over your contracted hours, at standard rate". Fair enough. I was happy financially with my 40 hours a week(35 contracted, 5 hours extra at normal pay rate), never had to claim a bean before, just always enough money for my expenses etc. But with £1300 knoocked off a year, well not only me, most of us will be buggered. We will be picking up 36 hours from our next payday, still within the conracts terms I suppose, but still not fair, money grabbing bosses. Always the poor people get shafted.
  3. We are contracted for 35 hours, but all staff do more, 40, 42, 48 and upwards, at no extra, meaning no overtime etc. I have worked nights now a few years, 4 nights a week, for 10 hours shifts. I have been doing 40 hours all this time. Now what with minimum wage going up in October, and works pensions, and also our firm HAS to have 3 staff on nights now, the bosses have to pay for all these extras. Well last week, we were told we MUST have a 1 hour break in the night now, and this will be deducted from our wages, so instead of picking up 40 hours, it is only 36 hours. Seeing as our work is busy and unpredictable,(care home), you cannot just stop for 1 hour, anything might happen. We get our breaks so to speak in times of quite, in between 1/2 hourly checks etc. But when you worked it all out it is a damned lot of money to be down weekly, monthly, and certainly yearly. 4x6.70=£26.80x4=£107.20x12=£1286.40 I am going to be nearly £1300 a year worse off, that was the council tax paid or my gas and electricity paid for the year. I do not claim anything, tax credits or anything. How am I to survive.
