I work as a contractor, I work a fixed shift of 10-6, and recently there has been a lot of talk about our office going 24/7 and that anyone who doesn’t like it tough – I’ve just come back from my break with my boss who’s attitude was far from acceptable, we all had to bite our lips. Now, I like my shift, any earlier would mean no sleep and no transport, any later would not be safe, as a woman walking anywhere at night is a risk, even on my shift now I have to be careful, but late night walking through the area I live is out of the question – in other words I have no intention to move shifts.
As far as I am concerned this is not in our contract, my hope is that everyone will point blank refuse to work later or earlier shifts, then I won’t be alone, if this shift swap changes my impression is that we will get fired if we don’t do it, but because of our contracts we could easily file for unfair dismissal – but what until we get fired, am I just supposed to go in on my usual shifts and tell management where to stick it? If they do propose this is there anything we can do past just sitting tight and ignoring them?
