Sorry from the beginning if this isn't well worded or anything, but there's a lot going on.

Basically, the academy I work for changing the work hours from 8 to 9 hours a day. They want the teachers who are still in the middle of their contract to resign and agree to the work hours.

Do they have any right to do this, and if we refuse, what could they possibly do?

Also, myself and my coworkers are discussing our plans, and what the possibilities are going ahead. This has me slightly worried, since it could be seen as labor organization, but I don't really know. Does anyone know the relevant laws here, and if we could be facing serious trouble?

I'm not keen to give out more information, but if you have any questions, or want me to clarify something, I can.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Oh, and we are calling the labor board tomorrow. Hopefully they can help too.

Demand more money.  Are they going to pay you more?  IE  If you make 2.3, ask for 2.6 million per month.

Figure out your hourly rate and new hours.

Demand the difference or donít sign anything!
