Hi all. If you have an investigative meeting at work and they want to take it further I believe they have 48hrs to inform you in writing. How much time does a rep have to sort out coming to the meeting?
Looking for a bit of advice. The company I work for, [the countries biggest security company], is trying to pull a fast one. My colleagues and I, [and tens of thousands of others who work on a shift pattern of 4 on 4 off doing 12 hour shifts], have found out, that with no warning, consultation or contract renewal/offer, our contracted allowance of 28 days holiday per year, [20 at full 12 hours and 8 at 8.4 for bank holidays], is to be cut down to 23 next year and then 20 the year after. We ALL have contracts signed going back over the past dozen or so years and more that stipulate our allowance to be the before mentioned 28 days. Can they just do this without our consent. It's basically breaking a contract with no warning or alternative offer of a new contract. I only found out due to having holiday denied with the statement of "Your request for holiday from 26/10/2019 to 26/10/2019 has been declined. Reason : Exceeds Annual Leave Entitlement" Surely they cannot just break a contract signed and agreed upon by tens of thousands of workers....?
