I would de,finitely work to rule. Not wanting to upset you , do you genuinely feel that the workload you ar edong is for a full timer. In what way. Are you affected by your current workload.is your workload different to other part timers, what discussions took place about work expectations when you went part time. These are questions to consider when you meet with your boss, hr and your union rep again. It isn't about being given your full time hours back but about whether the workload you have is considerably more than do able etc..... Good luck
Unfortunately you make them let you go full time again. But you need to have a frank discussion with them and say you are not coping with the level of work. If they kick up a fuss, talk to HR or a union rep if you have one!
Thanks for the supportive replies. They are saving money in their eyes, and I am just about doing the job, so to them, all looks ok. Definitely a lack of support I think..... Advice line or HR sounds like a good idea. I also need to if d out whether flexible working requests are temporary or permanent.......
Is it easy to divide work up? Because you should be doing half of what your colleagues are doing? But I appreciate drawing the line isn't always easy. And join us on the chat thread, today has been a very quiet MN day.. Anyone would think it was sunny outside
I'm sorry no one has responded to your thread, I haven't got the answer for you but you are obviously under a lot of pressure and it sounds like there is a lot more going on, ie you are not being supported. Try and do a google search about where you could get some advice. Does your workplace have an advice line or can you speak to anyone in HR?
I asked to go back to full time after a year of part time working which has been shite (no less work, just half pay). The boss said he didn't think it would be possible. I have pissed on my own chips going part time. The next meeting I had had me spontaneously bursting into tears over the poor unsuspecting woman. How do I recover from that?????
