    the only way they can make you do overtime is if they got you to sign a form saying you are willing to work more than 48 hours a week

    depends on the company where i am now they will send you home an hour early when its not so busy but when its busy they tell you at like 4:50pm that your staying till 6pm no if and buts

    tbh they make it up as they go along and they think they can sack you without following there company procedure

    at christmas they expect you to work 6 days a week 11 hours a day and you have to work boxing day and new years day and lat christmas they didnt pay there warehouse staff for having christmas day off yet paid the lorry drivers

    yeah we have to be on call once every 5 weeks, and have to do at least 21 shifts a year. the call is to cover sickness and the 21 shifts are to cover other peoples holidays. we get time and a half. We have this in our agreement because we used to work the old continental which was 7 on 2 off with quick changeover (8hrs) and we wanted to change to 4 on 4 off 12 hour shifts so we had to agree to provide holiday and sickness cover in some way or form.

    noone can force you into over time, they can ask you to do it but can't tell you, also if they are going to be changing your hours they have to give you notice. i'd see your union guy.

    Company I'm working for frequently tell me my shift has changed with less than 12 hours notice (e.g instead of 8am-5pm, I'm doing 3pm-12am and that kind of crap)

    I basically couldn't do anything about it, so I looked for a different job instead, only have another 3 weeks of this crap left now.

    My advice if your unhappy is to not to bother try to change it, just look for a new job.
    Generally unless your a manager, the people who try to change things get a bad name.

    Making your life easier means your making life more difficult for somebody else.

    (Your circumstances are somewhat different given that you'd submitted your notice although personally I don't believe what they've told you and are just using it as a way to twist your arm and get you to do weekend shifts.

    lol love the 1st line

    as for the 2nd i reckon they think im desprate for the job but im not i was 8 month ago when i started as i really needed it but not anymore
    im selling my house and ill be renting soon my g/f is making average money now doing lapdancing though now the world cup is over they have noticed a big increase in custom so id expect that to rise soon for her
    as for me ive got the choice in 3 years time to move country providing i can save enough up and dont hit any problems along the way

    so with them trying to get me to work weekends will just backfire on them and they will find that out later on when i tell them that today is my last day as i handed my notice in last week what amazes me is how thy get away with so much no one seems to stand up to them as half the things they do would be ripped apart by a union

    the place is a dive anyway id rather work in kfc for 8 hours mon-fri which is what im thinking of doing anyway lol

    i think im better off going college and learning car mechanics or something else i can take with me and get a better job with

    well if you have no qualms, then I recommend checking out the night shift in tesco, good money to be made there.

    If you can get a place, security guards at universitys also tend to make good money.

    Wouldn't recommend working in KFC or McD's or whatever, far better money to be made in other "unskilled" jobs.

    Oh yea - some IT call centres (not sales) pay good money to night staff (the job consists of browsing the internet for 9hours)

    I hate all this crap thats why I just had enough one day and worked for myself.

    Started delivering local papers 4 days a week and made 3-400 a week at that and just progreessed to the point where I now have teams out delvering them and I handle the haulage side of picking up from the press and taking it to sector agents all over london and surrey as well as a few other buisnesses on the go.

    Just take the plunge mate and tell them to fok off if you are dedicated enough to anything you can make money elsewhere.

    All the things I say are what I have done and what I have found instead of what i have read.
