Letters, calls and emails: Have BMA negotiators left us with no redress?

Am I missing something? I thought a contract was a legally binding agreement between two parties that could not be varied without joint consent.

I believed that we had agreed to work 08.00-18.30, Monday to Friday; now we are told that the government is unilaterally going to change the contract and that if we don't accept their offer, an even worse one will be imposed.

A contract like this isn't worth the paper it is written on. Surely the BMA should seek legal advice. If we have no redress, the negotiators who signed it on our behalf should hang their heads in shame.
