Well, we have two cover staff. One refuses to do nights, because she's sensible, and the other works the other night shift because they're not hiring anyone to replace the member of staff who left that position, and she has visa restrictions besides (I also strongly suspect they intend to downsize the staffing levels post Christmas).
Quite frankly, I think night shift does deserve extra pay, at least for unsociable hours. But this company....they don't just ignore basic human decency, they literally will not do something unless you bring solicitors into the picture. So yeah. My best bet is to finish my dissertation, then get the hell out of dodge.
And they can't hire a contractor for a couple of days while you're out?
Yeah, that seems like a pretty normal course of action. My school did it when there was a campus security story published in the newspaper.
Incidentally they hired Securitas, which I later found out is the modern incarnation of the Pinkertons. And they didn't even bust any unions while they were there.
