hi ALL

need your expert help.

I was hired by a company and i am confirmed staff.
in my employment contract clearly stated that :

Monday to Thursday : 8:30am to 5:30pm
Friday : On call
Saturday & Sunday : Rest Day

now the MD left and new MD came. He instructed the HR to give me a letter stated that from 01-Dec onwards my working hours are changed to Monday to Friday 8:30am to 5:30pm

He is using the clause :
the company's management shall have the discretion to alter/change your working hours as deemed necessary due to operational changes of the company, but with the above working arrangement noted.

I am wondering can he simply change ? i took this offer is because of the 4 working days, if they give me 5 working days at this price, i won't even accept this employment.
I ring up IR in shah alam, the officer told me that "they have right to alter/change but not expand", means they can change and ask me to work on site Monday, Tuesday, Thursday & Friday and oncall on Wednesday. No matter how they change, it must be 4 days on site + 1 day on call.

Any advice ?
