I' m employed by my local council as a duty supervistor. We originally had 4 posts but the council restructured and now have 3 :Front of House Manager& 2 Assistant Front of House Managers (my role). The 3 roles work 2 out of 3 weekends instead of 2 out of 4 now. The front of House Manager does the rota. He has now given myself and my colleague nearly all of the evening shifts and himself only 2 of the evening shifts in any month period. He claims that the General Manager wants to see him during the day.Each day that I work I have to start and finish at a different time in a calender month.I had to apply for this "reasonable alternative" or be forced to resign. Redundancy was not offered.In all the contracts, regular evening shifts are necessary. I have tried to reason with the Front of House Manager stating that the shifts were not fairly distributed as I have no work-life balance anymore. I have not signed my contract for this "new - enforced role" (or resign) although I am working the shift pattern. I am not asking for day shifts only that the rota is fair for all 3 of us and that my shifts are the same start time.(EVERY DAY IS DiFFERENT). If, when I was told to apply for the new role, that I would have to work almost every evening (i have just done 7 shifts in a row) OR that my shift rota would start and end on a different time EVERY calendar day, then I may have decided not to even apply for this role and be forced to leave - but then surely this "new role" would not have been deemed a suitable alternative and then redundancy should have been offered. Contract states hours of work include regular evenings, wkends & bank hols.I think it is completely unreasonable to start each day with a different start time.
