Part time staff (16/20 hours at present) were asked recently if they wanted to go to full time. Subsequently the offer appears to be an increase to 35 hours.
As stated in the Managers Briefing pack February/March 2018
"From October 2018, new full-time colleagues will be recruited on a 35-hour week."
As someone has already pointed out on the union forum “New” does not mean existing employees, but new recruits.
So why was the offer touted as full time when the actual hours are part-time?
Is the agreement being misinterpreted and that from October 2018 no-one will be offered a 38 hour contract?
ps. I declined the offer.
