Due to someone leaving the business a duty will becoming vacant within the next few weeks,being the most senior reserve in the office i would like to sign for this duty but I am being told that this may not be possible as the person leaving is on a 30hr contract thus the walk is a 30hr duty. I’m struggling to see the relevance of this? Surely if I’m next in line for a walk then I should get first shout? Am I correct?
Any help gratefully accepted. Thanks

I am guessing the actual walk is no different for the 30hr contracted person than a walk that a full timer does. The only difference will be the indoor work (they probably start later). Delivery of the walk matters not as it’s the same. I will bet my wage that this “part time walk” has been covered by a full timer in the past for annual leave or days off. In that case did the full timer who was covering it only get paid 30hrs that week? I think not.

Put in for it.
Drop to 30 hour contract.
Then use your trolley and piss about, you know the drill, go for a smoke/wank whatever , don't do any IPS and spend all day throwing out 2 walks.
Book loads of overtime EVERY week.
Go and see Johnny Friendly(rep) after 6 months, take the new agreement with you. Bang on about Equality etc yadda yadda, hard done by etc etc.
Get made up to 39 hours.
