I have been in my current role for around 3 years.
I have been accepted for an inter-company transfer to a different department. My current contract is 40 hours per week and is based on 12 hour rotating shifts (one week will be 60 hours, the second week 24 hours).
The new role is 09:00 - 17:30 and is an entirely different job role with an increase in responsibility, it is NOT shift work anymore.
I had an informal chat with my current manager who said that they'd just extend my current contract and I would still be on a 40 hour week (although everyone in my new department is on 37.5 hours).
I expressed my concern for this and said I was unhappy and would like a new contract. Could you offer any advice on this please, am I right in asking for a new contract?
