Can an employer withdraw a Sunday premium of 'time and a half

Resolved Question:

Can an employer withdraw a Sunday premium of 'time and a half ' which I have been entitled to for 20 yrs,under the criteria of a Sunday being a 'normal working day'. Also have now been told that if I continue to refuse to sign then my employment may be terminated.

The employer can't do this unilaterally. You would have to agree.
If you don't agree, the employer could make the job redundant but would have to pay you redundancy pay. The employer could not dismiss you in any other way as it is the employer which risks being in breach of contract by seeking to force the change on you.
