Are there rules on how much notice you need to give/be given to change someones shift start/finish time?

Contract dependant - plus whether or not the change over period breaches the Working Time Directive - IIRC there must be an 11 hour rest period.
Just checked it and it says reasonable notice, so nothing set in stone...we've generally gone on a 5 working days understanding, but now its been tested today I wanted to check.

Cheers anyhoo :)
When I worked shift it was 'supposed' to be a months notice unless on relief week then it could almost be 24 hours depending on whether you were able to do it. 6 months notice for a complete shift change with agreement through the proper channels ie union etc and fully complient with working time regs. However - in practice - we were all pretty flexible and helped each other out which management ok'd so that no-one went sick just cos they couldnt get the day off (or whatever) and we ended up running short on the shift
Yea its been pretty flexible up until today when its been rammed down our throats
We @ the BT group get a 13 week notice
are you in a union? they'll be able to tell you
my oh's place ring an hour before some times :o
Well in the end I didnt do the proposed shift change...I had a catch-up meeting (one-to-one) with the boss today about it though lol ...had all the pyramid hands and team player in this financial climate ****
