I've witnessed some poor practices from Tesco but this calamity takes the biscuit. With the heat map delayed until week 5. (let's say Monday, but likely Wednesday onwards), then have to put together potential vacancies (massive piece of work). So I suspect colleagues will know week 6 for meeting in  7? And were told how long ago? Absolutely farcical. You would think this process is first time for Tesco the way they are conducting themselves.

Does anyone reckon we will actually go to an AM PR scan?

Does anyone else think that stores that are having counters removed should stop full counting these areas now? How can we expect these colleagues to be weighing up stock when they know they could be/most likely be out of a job in a few weeks... why should they care, I wouldn’t blame them.

Date embedded barcodes on fresh... could this be the end of the  PR scan?

So many questions... so little answers  ??? ???

Express stores have already implemented Potential Reductions (Job 14) as an AM task, my store has to do it between 8am and 10am.

These colleagues (like myself) and my work colleagues are still turning up clocking in and out working hard completing tasks engaging with the customers still enjoying each shift, whilst wondering and worrying and hoping for a positive outcome.

Yes, in that there's less final reductions, It is problematic in that it can easily cause problems operations wise if you don't have someone that knows how to do it, if nobody does, the Shift leader has to ensure that fresh backstock is worked, labels are done, stores opened up, mismatch and ambient gap scan is done, etc et  , I've been 1 on 2 (1 is baking so effectively just 1 on 1, me and a stock controller) to do all of these tasks before delivery arrives, to do J 14 well takes 1-1.5 hours in a standard fresh sales cat 3 express..

I've been working a week of cover on our counters to cover sickness and holiday. My store, at least, has very little stock; I'd say someone at a senior level has decided to reduce deliveries to the absolute minimum.

Potential vacancies? >:(Isn't the idea of this structure dismantlement to lose 4.5k staff >:D There will certainly be hell to pay if Tesco redeploy thousands of staff onto the dole queue and then go about filling those "newly created" vacancies with poor saps on flexi contracts. >:D I certainly know where I would tell them to stick their collective "Team Fives"
We had a talk with our n/s manager about the release posted by Arthur Dent. He said he knew about it after they had denied all knowledge of anything(even their parents). I have come to realise that these numbnuts can't even lie properly.Oh, for the days when managers were actually human and were able to admit when they didn't know the full picture rather than the shower we have who are too interested in pushing forward "Yes men" as future option candidates. >:(

In our store there has been no word from no one since the six weeks ago we were told we would be seen. This is the thanks you get for dedicating a very large chunk of your life to this company. An absolute joke the way the affected staff have been treated.

Totally agree with the above comment. People have been waiting far too long and clarity should be given.

Think it's always been the case that once a store's individual heatmap was released, the store manager would need time to analyse it before staff were briefed. People assuming that the heatmap would come down and they would know the outcome the same day are misguided.

I also suspect access to it will be restricted so as to make consultations fair. Imagine if employee A partner of manager B is told what shifts the heatmap wants on stock control, thus enabling them to plan their responses. They would then be at a unfair advantage to employee C who would go into their consultation with no idea as to what the heatmap proposes.

Also past history has shown the heatmap never lands instore on the day it is first promised. Its normally at least one week late.

The heat map hasn’t come down yet, it’s expected next week, you can’t do 1 to 1s with no real information. You’d just be getting told what you likely already know.

Colliedog and Cuddleypup, forgot to mention that the redundancy calculator on this site was a good guide to the payout, just exclude the 'in lieu of notice' payment and you should get the payout figures within a few pounds.

Hi cupcake was redundancy payment calculated on contracted hours now( March)  or  before we lost a contracted hour end of december   because it can make quite a difference to payout I read on gov site if your hours were cut very close to redundancy they had to pay you on your previous wage   Thanks

Totally agree! Makes you wonder how it will all end. They are probably trying to find out where the loop holes are in paying the staff as little as possible in regards to redundancy payments

The unions and Tesco had a joint meeting on the 11th of March.  The outcome of this meeting was released to affected staff today, the 22nd.  11 days have passed to tell us that our 1 to1 interview will now be on the 12th of April.

As it stands there is no heat map nor any idea about what the new routines for stock control look like.

I don't think they will be able to do all this efficiently in such a short time bearing in mind the company have already said they did not want to rush this.  Still who cares it's only our future and we just have to wait, very difficult for all employees concerned to have a normal life and not worry about their future.

Hi Solarish, the redundancy is on the new hours, we tried to argue it but no joy, I believe that the union are trying to get Tesco to do the decent thing and pay us the difference, they ( the union ) have said that legally they had the right to cut our hours but morally when they were aware of what was planned they should pay us the difference, I won't hold my breath but who knows?

When Tesco decide to implement a reduction in hours they will do it. At any time and on any day. There is always a well devised plan from start to finish to implement these hour reductions including redundancy. If you have questions about redundancy and consultation look up your local employment website like ACAS or LRA in Northern Ireland. its black and white. These processes are developed with no thought about the person on the receiving end. Believe me I've been through it. Best of luck

I had far more than I expected I had hours taken away last year so don't know how it was calculated but I don't care more in my pocket

Group Consultation which was supposed to happen next week has been pulled. The Union have got their way and extended the process for these consultations. As mentioned above, these will begin on April 12th, but this date is TBC.

Yes moved back from the 9th to the 12th and still may be subject to change.  The new big six is interesting and confirms how reduced in importance stock control is. Availability and waste no longer there or even supporting measures.
