Shifts seem to be changed on a whim3Kura Response2y
Thanks for your feedback. We do not change shifts 'on a whim' we notify a minimum of 4 weeks in advance and these are published on our planning system. If you need help accessing this please ask your line manager. On the parking and canteen, if you watched my recent vlog you will understand our position on both topics but if you have more that you would like to raise you can find details of your representative for the Employee Forum on the Bridge or can raise them through your line manager.
