MySQL query Syntax with many to many relationship...

I have a table employees and a table shifts.  They have a many to many relationship.

I want to be able to view the employees who are logged into two/three specific shifts.
So the query is kinda like this...

SELECT SHIFTS.EMP_ID,
      SHIFTS.SHIFT_ID,
      EMPLOYEES.EMP_FNAME
FROM EMPLOYEES INNER JOIN SHIFTS ON EMPLOYEES.EMP_ID = SHIFTS.EMP_ID
WHERE SHIFT_ID = (26 AND 27 AND 28)

except the where statement is clearly wrong.  I want it to return the employees who are logged onto the shifts 26 AND 27 AND 28.

Please help with the syntax.  Thanks in advance!
Nick

SELECT SHIFTS.EMP_ID,
      SHIFTS.SHIFT_ID,
      EMPLOYEES.EMP_FNAME, count(distinct SHIFT_ID) shifts
FROM EMPLOYEES
JOIN SHIFTS ON EMPLOYEES.EMP_ID = SHIFTS.EMP_ID
WHERE SHIFT_ID IN (26 ,27 ,28)
group by 1,2,3
HAVING count = 3;

SELECT SHIFTS.EMP_ID,
      SHIFTS.SHIFT_ID,
      EMPLOYEES.EMP_FNAME, count(distinct SHIFT_ID) shifts
FROM EMPLOYEES
JOIN SHIFTS ON EMPLOYEES.EMP_ID = SHIFTS.EMP_ID
WHERE SHIFT_ID IN (26 ,27 ,28)
group by 1,2,3
HAVING shifts = 3;

or more info:
SELECT SHIFTS.EMP_ID,
      SHIFTS.SHIFT_ID,
      EMPLOYEES.EMP_FNAME,
      count(distinct IF(SHIFT_ID IN (26 ,27 ,28),SHIFT_ID, NULL)) shifts,
      COUNT( distinct SHIFT_ID) total_shifts
FROM EMPLOYEES
JOIN SHIFTS ON EMPLOYEES.EMP_ID = SHIFTS.EMP_ID
group by 1,2,3
HAVING shifts = 3;

if SHIFTS has UNIQUE EMP_ID + SHIFT_ID, you can remove DISTINCT from count
