    Hi I'm new on here just wondered if anyone could help I am a team leader for a small shop and about 3months ago we got a new manager who has advised me that I had to start doing different shifts I have always done early shifts as that way I was home for tea and doing medication since doing the shifts which some nights I am not home till after 11pm my diabetes is not as well controlled as it was. I have told my boss that it is not ideal but was told that I had to do mixed shifts. Just wondered if anyone else had similar problems and I am thinking of speaking to union but not sure if I would be wasting my time.

    What does your contract say about changes to working hours?

    Contract states needs of the business however I explained that i was finding it difficult working shifts to old manager and it was OK the new manager says that it's needs of the business N if I can't do it then I should consider stepping down
