iKnow

Can I ask where this info is from as informative as it is
I feel we need clarity of its credibility 

You can ask, but unfortunately disclosure would potentially identify me.  You don't have to believe me, just wait and see.

The infomation given is just that.  Infomation.

Take it.  Leave it.

services TL, surely one that should stay, being a service role etc. etc, far more so than say the produce TL.

Services Team Leader goes.

Greengrocer Team support is a service area, and don't forget that Quality is a big thing at the moment on Customer Viewpoint.

i agree because it seems now more team leader jobs are staying than before
like counters wasn't even on the list

Who says that it wasn't already on the list?  What you mean, is that it wasn't on VLH, and you didn't know about it.

It would also seem to add several manager roles we don't have at the moment and honestly don't need.

Not all managers will be added to every store.  The majority or Non food managers & Grocery Managers at dependant on the store

I apologise that I cannot give more infomation.  I understand that this is a frustrating time for you all.

I haven't read through the brief for larger formats but what IKnow has said around express is correct.  The only question mark at the moment is what to call the second line manager in larger express stores and depending on the outcome of a couple of the payroll trials, how many duty leads to have.  It was suggested to call it a Compliance/Integrity Manager and change a number of accountabilities as the current structure puts all on the deputy.

Your going to need at least 2 of the duty leads if its a like for like replacement of 2 current team leaders - the question is do the current express team leaders simply move into the new role or is it a case of applying and waiting and seeing.

Its a question of having 2 or maybe 3 so managers no longer have to run shift.  It would make sense for them to reapply as it would remove some of the less capable TLs

Great news for fresh stock control/integrity, only 11% of the store to deal with.
Terrible news for GM stock control/integrityl now having to look after 89% of all the stock in the store.

Fair balance?....mmmmmm

interesting to see how they will supervise space range merchandising on night shift , for at the moment having a manager on days leaves the onus on the TL . May not seem an important to role to most out there , but having a upset off ex team leader in space range with no managerial replacement is going to cut productivity big time

Those in TL roles who are being replaced as Team Support - will they automatically be shifted into those roles or wil they have first refusal with an offer of redundancy?

I'm a merchandising T/L. I will always give 100% but they won't realise what's hit them when I go back to being a GA. They'll probably performance manage me, accuse me of slacking just because of sour grapes.

Yes I quite agree I am a Non Food Stock Control/SRM Manager and have a merchandising team leader without whom the operation would fall over. The decision making when I am not around, technical knowledge on GR and floor planning and drive needed to ensure plans are delivered over night needs this T/L role.
Now with the possibility of having to pick up Grocery stock control on top of Non Food and Space/Range as suggested in an earlier post would leave me even less time for SRM and be a massive role in an large Extra.

joint stock control manager / space range seems a absolute massive job ,it cant be right. Theres a minimum of two manager jobs there and an argument of a managerial role on space range nights .

In all my years of being a T/L on Merchandising I have never worked for a Stock Control/SRM Manager who was competent enough to do the combined role of SC/SRM Manager effectively. I'm sure there are plenty of managers out there who are but unfortunately for me I've always had to do the merchandising side of things on my own. I don't even be-grudge the managers for that, as has been said it's a massive role as it is, but that being said I'm looking forward to stepping down to a GA as I've been working beyond my pay grade for too long.

Maybe the merchandising itself will slow down. I regularly shop at the competitor stores and they don't seem to move things around anywhere near as often as we do.

I agree there is some scaremongering going on about this Loki, but to be fair the intention of Tesco is clear that they will be introducing it in more and more stores over the coming years.

Of course there is gossip/scaremongering.
Anything will fill a vacuum.
If neither the company or the TU give out information it will come from "somewhere".
Very shortsighted and ignorant of both company and TU which will increase the distrust and lower morale.
