I've started work at a call centre where existing staff are paid double on sundays, a new agency now runs the account i work on and new employees are only paid single time, i imagine this is perfectly legitimate but it seems very unfair, and means i'm more likely to be picked for a sunday shift as it costs them half as much! Do i have any sort of grounds to refuse to work sunday shifts? I'm happy to either work sundays and be paid the same as everyone else or just work monday-saturday at the basic rate, but i refuse to be paid half as much as someone sat next to me doing the exact same thing.
Sorry if i'm ranting but it's an annoying situation and i don't know whether there is anything i can do about it.
Thanks in advance for genuine replies
