I've taken up the vacant role of office rep, somebody had to do so I thought I'd take on the poison chalice. One of my first challenges is the dealing with the threat of changing a few of my members shift patterns as they often fail to complete. Management have said they are going to make their duties a rotational day off and take them off the 1 week off in 6 system and give them a rota day. The rest of the office would remain on the 1 in 6. These guys have signed for these duties so they haven't been placed on them. What is the advice with this situation? Can management do this? Obviously, I can go straight to the area rep for advice but I thought I'd seek here as I have been told this forum has a wealth of experienced postal workers and reps.
