Yes, 3% would be "worse off" and hence get the compo payment.
But what % of people would get the "full effect of the much lauded 10.5% pay rise"?
Certainly no-one that works any Sundays or BHs!!
That's the most disappointing aspect of all this - if you're a Sunday worker, chances are you won't get any compo and overall your weekly pay might increase by 3% over two years (compared to 10.5% for any non-sunday workers).
However, Tesco have enough teenagers fresh out of school to call on to work Sundays - so don't think it'll cause them much of an issue - until those teenagers start drinking and have hangovers every Sunday!!
Somewhat generalising here.....

It’s 3% in November . I do 50% of my hours on a Sunday. 7.5 paid hours on a Sunday and the same on another day in the week.

Tesco employees are lucky they are getting anything a lot of companies have no premiums and expect staff to work for min wage day or night.

It's nothing to do with being lucky or not. It's part of the contract you sign up to. I applied for a job in a pub once - the interview was in November and it was made clear at the interview that all hours were paid at flat rate - and one of the questions I was asked at the interview was whether I would be available to work on Christmas Day, Boxing Day, NYE and NYD. It was one of those questions that you felt if you had answered no you may as well not be applying.....

However, with Tesco or any other companies, if enhancements are removed whilst you're in post and you have a contract, it's effectively a breach of contract - so Tesco and others offer "compensation" -

Anyway - we've all talked about it enough already - let's all look forward to our huge compo packages and plan our summer holidays in Hawaii!!

Hi..Can someone advise in the simplest way as I'm not the sharpest  :D

I've applied for a job thats Fri,Sat,Sun nights...10pm-7am. I'm a bit confused with regards to night premium and Sunday premium etc.

Could someone advise how much I would get for each individual shift ?

Thank you so much.

They can't take peoples' entitlement to that away, can they? I thought it was part of terms & conditions & they had to pay it?

Of course they can, just have to give you a 90 day contractual change notice.
