Could anyone shed any light on where the Police (force) stand in relation to the Working time Directive. We are currently being told that we need to change our shift pattern from seven nights to two nights as the new directive says this has to happen. If this is the case then so be it. However being the cynical sod that i am and having been told so many un truths through out my 20+ yrs i am loathe to believe what i told. I have tried to find out myself but just get bogged down. Thanks for any help.
