Firstly, it is the project manager and not the employer that makes such decisions. The contract does not allow for the changing of the activity schedule, unless it is changed in accordance with the contract – see clause 11.2(20). The primary ways it can be changed in option A is set out in clauses 54.2 and 63.12, neither of which covers your circumstance. The spirit of mutual trust and co-operation cannot be used to change a contract the parties have agreed to and so there is no contractual obligation to change this activity schedule.
