Title: Colleague Clubcard
Post by: Woody00 on 17-12-18, 11:30PM
Hi

I was just wondering if this was just a rumour but is it true they have changed the amount of
months you have to work for the company from 6 to 3 to get a Colleague Clubcard?

I heard this from another CA who was a manager from another store?

Thanks

No, its still 6 months. Colleagues seem to get confused because new starters now receive established pay after 3 months.

Isn't this something they are consulting about at the moment, similar to the extra breaks if its super cold. At least thats the impression i was given by my union rep.

About time to the union consulted and campaigned for a better pay deal and higher wages instead of c**p like an extra break if it's super cold and clubcard earlier.  Even getting premiums back.

USDAW will never try and negotiate for any better pay deal or conditions, it is so far up Tescos arse it has lost sight of daylight. Is it no coincidence that USDAW colour branding is the same colour as Tesco !

As breaks are unpaid, how many people would actually want additional breaks if its super cold?

As a dot.com driver my stock reply to customers commenting on the cold weather is "Dress for the conditions and keep moving".  Mind, having a heater in the cab for 2/3 of my time while out delivering helps.  If I was out walking or in the stand watching the footy then I would be wearing an extra layer to when working outside.

Agree, always amazes me when it's freezing/snowing and you get cashier's in short sleeved tops moaning they are cold. If you know you will be sitting down for long periods order a fleece, long sleeved tops and wear t-shirt or thermals underneath.
