Working Hours, Out Of Hours Payments

Long hours, pressure to work at weekends and poor or unfair payments for overtime, shifts or standby are major concerns for employees.
UNITE reps are playing their part alongside PCS reps and UKCF reps in trying to ensure that company plans to “harmonise” contracts for all UK employees make things better rather than worse.
This will affect you regardless of whether you currently work Out Of Hours, or whether you currently get paid for it.
Quite a number of members and non-members have already filled in our survey on Out Of Hours. The survey is available via a link from our campaign web page:
Please take the time to complete the survey, and encourage your workmates to do the same, whether they are in the union or not.
