Part time days change
8

proseccodreamz · 23/02/2021 14:11

I have been working part time for 6 years- the same days. The school are saying they may have to change to days of part time teachers. Can they do this!!

The short answer is yes. All our PTers know to expect a change each year.

Yes - and in fact - if your contract is just 0.6 or 0.8 they can even put it over 5 days!

Most don't... but they can.

Our PT days change most years depending on the timetable.

It depends what your contract says. I f it specifies actual days of the week, then I don't think they can change them without your agreement. If it just specifies a percentage e.g. 0.6 (like most do) then they can change your days, but it still needs to be negotiated/consulted on with plenty of notice to be reasonable.

I didn’t realise that they weren’t meant to change your days off! I assumed you waited for July in a day off lottery timetabling game and then frantically arranged childcare for September.

Mine changes every year. We have a 2 week timetable so each week is different also.

OP it might not be ok for them to do this if you have worked in the same pattern for a long time - there is an element of custom and practice (I might have the phrase wrong) - as a union rep I've been involved in something about this, pm me if you want more info don't want to write it on here.

Thank you! I've spoken to the union and they said the same thing. Hopefully that will be the case. Smile

Suspect this is different (though not in the legal sense) in primary and secondary, as in the former there aren't new timetables every September. I would think it unusual in primary for days to be changed even year to year without discussion.
