Hi all,

I have worked for over three years for the same company, with a TUPE at the end of last year. the new company are not instlling confidence in the staff up to having to highlight the basic legal rights for self certification of sick leave!!

anyway... my original position has always been given an overview of the shift patterns for the year, allowing us to organise our personal life around work etc. but i have been on a secondment for over a year with another department and about to return end of the month. but, i am now expected to receive a roster on a weekly basis so can no longer plan/ organise anything!!

this new system is not being rolled out across the department but just for the returning secondee's.


my contract only states the usual 35hrs per week and the need to be flexible.

my question is do I have to suck it up or do I have a case for discriminaton as we are no longer recieving the same level of notice as everyone else in the department..


many thanks

Agree that it is terrible for planning your life when you are basically at their beck and call at short notice. Is there any reason why the company needs to differentiate between the 2 staff groups like this other than they can if it suits them? You should read your original terms of employment carefully as that will decide whether there is grounds for fighting this

The job is in transport (don't want to say whom). Each person has an individual start time depending on the arrival of their allocated vehicle minus sign on time etc. The company are trying to build a buffer for changes and cover which I can understand but their proposal stinks for the reasons already stated. I've spoken to lower management, but as usual they claim to be only the under instructions from higher up. T's & C's don't cover it but the system has been in place for some twenty years. Each team gets their shift pattern for the year, showing their days off and early/middle or late shifts. Then with at least a month or more notice their actual start/finish times.

Annual planning seems ridiculous for logistics where loads vary on a daily, never mind weekly, basis.. I think this is a thing they need to do in order to stay competitive.But I do think a collective voice via a union would help you negotiate the balance.

Never assume anyone on the internet is who they say they are. Only rely on advice from insured professionals you have paid for!
