What is in the 'TUPE pack'?

TUPE just provides that all your terms are transferred across as is. You don't need to sign anything for this to happen.

No employer can ever unilaterally change your contract terms without your agreement. However, where a change to terms is 'necessary' for one of a range of reasons, including business reasons around economics, then they can fairly dismiss you for refusing to agree to changes. So there is no time limit. If the new employer needs to change your terms immediately, then the above applies. The onus will be on them to prove the changes are necessary though.

I asked the question in the hope off having an answer before i had a meeting regarding this matter so the reply has come in too late.

thanks anyway
