I may be moved from my duty to a different one .( Long story).At the moment I do three six and a half hour days and three longer days of nine and a half.(Wallington rotation)
If I move the new duty will be all standard days ,I have been that I should have three months notice of duty time changes .Is this correct? Mine is the only duty in the office that has the different hours.
Cheers.

You are working 3X 6.5 hrs = 19.5 hrs + 3X9.5 hrs = 28.5 hrs giving a total of 48 hrs. Banking 9 hrs per week and as you are the only duty in the office that has these hours how is your week off covered in these hours. If you have signed for this duty then your starting/finishing times should not be changed unless by mutual agreement or has been included in a business driven change incorporating other duties. You state a " Long story" but would need more specific info to try and give you the best answer.

Bad idea telling them to stick it you may be walking out of a job.

It Is not compulsory to do the retraining and after thirty years plenty of people will be leaving my office before me.Someone will want my duty and I will become a floater.
