    Hi. I’ve been going through a bad time with my boss for ages especially after lockdown about hours at work I can get child care for. They are not being understanding of the covid restrictions, when I’m already restricted being on my own.  We had agreement of my new hours but three weeks in a row she hasn’t stuck to it and she put me on the rota for two days I can’t do. I have her 3days notice as the rota hadn’t been until two days before that anyway. So I rang 3x . She never answered at work. I had to text twice until finally I got a reply but have lost 10 hours work this week because she won’t put me in somewhere ,non the days I can get my son’s dad or my friend /bubble to do. So I asked the other department and they were happy to have me. She found out and told them I’m not doing them . When o left work she sent me a nasty text telling me this. And that I couldn’t do hours on ambient if I wouldn’t do them on counters. When it’s not about that. I told her. But she won’t listen. I don’t have babysitters for the days I said . I was going to do hours for other department on the day she was meant to put me on.

    I would raise your concerns with management and go above her as shes not listening
