Hi, given recent budget cuts etc. our school is looking to make economies. One such economy is that of lunch duties - they are proposing to no longer pay staff for lunch duties - currently staff are paid £12 per duty and receive a free lunch in the school canteen. I understand that should they stop paying this then I can refuse to do it as it is not part of my contractual obligations but I wondered, by the time they will introduce this change I will have done lunch duties for 3 years - has this become part of my contract - similar to how when a relative's company stopped doing on-call and had to pay him a sum to compensate? Also, there's talk of no longer providing a lunch to staff when meetings are scheduled at lunchtime (small thing - baked potato + filling but it's the principle). Is there a requirement for them to provide a meal if they are asking for meetings at lunch or is it simply going to be a case of people saying no meal then no meeting which I am fully prepared to do? Any advice welcome!
