 :'( The previous post on this subject was on 10/11/16 and I sort of remember agreeing with sinderella, well sadly he was right to a point and as predicted it's starting to spread. The Depot I work, the tm's have been notified of numbers and options and I believe are just waiting for consultations to begin. What a lovely Christmas present.  :'(

whiterabbit this suggests that after the new year will be a different story.

Do you know if all cuts to be made to a store generally happen at one time.

Do they just focus on a department or a few at a time?

I wish i knew why

Talk in Belfast and Antrim is that the cull starts after the new year. Time will tell.
4 out of 7 will do me

What predictions have been correct?
What numbers and options have the TMs been notified of?
If the Livingston depot is hit it looks as if my store will have a few late deliveries.  :thumbdown:

Everything has gone quite on this topic, but the death knell is tolling and Dave Leis and his cronies are wearing the "black cap" as they pass sentence .......

Has the pilot been successful, what were the benefits / pitfalls, guess we will never know , because the Tesco / USDAW PR machine will go in to full flow proclaiming the trial a resounding success ....

All we ask for is the OPEN HONEST and TRANSPARENT policies and procedures and ADULT CONVERSATIONS  that we have been promised since Dave Lewis's appointment..... but I won't hold my breathe !!!!!!!!

A pilot in Tesco isn't a pilot or a study. It's a directive where they are being told make this work for this amount of funding they are willing to throw at it.

The sad facts are those that steered the ship on to the rocks were the first to man the life boats and left the sinking ship with all they could plunder, and those left have been left bail out the sinking sink , with leaky buckets

 even sadder is that the company is beset by bounty hunters crawling over the wreckage and claim salvage rights on anything of value left ......

Very true, Arizonarugby.

But the current direction of things isn't shaping things up any better. Operationally, a lot of the stores where I live are suffering, lack of staff coverage, shelves not filled, equipment being worked to destruction, the list goes on.
It's a a ticking time bomb just waiting to go off.

We all know there are too many managers on the shop floor. Same amount of work is completed if 1 or 30. Probably would get same amount of work done if there was a 1 SL on a reduced rate replacing the DM too.

If all the night team which is meant to be over hours was moved onto day shift they would need to spend more on storage space as same work would not get done.

The directors are not interested in anything other than fulfilling a mandate they have set to ensure they get there next 20-30 million at the least. They will pretend they are looking closely at each store but what they are really doing is ripping the fking arse out of it as when all is done they will be on the Options. With all the money they have already how can they sleep at night burning people who earn £7-£10 per hour and  have arthritis for their efforts.

Why anybody from nights would take a day job I do not know to potentially go through all this again.

The clock is ticking at the Depot I work, it's obvious that the TM's have been informed of what is about to happen but they are saying very little. There is understandably a horrible atmosphere at work and I have heard the odd comment "why should I give a sh*te, I might not be here in three weeks" amongst other little slip ups. What a nasty position to be put in. Don't get me wrong I will be happy to see some of these arrogant misfits go but I think because of the way Tosco have handled this situation they will never be forgiven. >:D

Well hear you can be a podium monkey for £5/ wk more than an ordinary pleb.the ordinary members of staff think that we should get a big brother type vote for who goes from the managers a chance of pay back for all the c**p we have had to put up with.

The clock is certainly ticking, but the TM's haven't been informed of anything yet, the announcement is going to be made today 9/1/17.

This is again a prime example of how Tesco treat their people ..... you promised us the earth on People's Roadshow ... shared you vision and got on bus the bus only to find the destination had changed for utopia to oblivion....

Genuinely, good luck today Arizonarugby, I understand the next step is that you find out if you're on the "at risk list" Not definitively whether you are going or not, just if you are "at risk" or not.
It's not enough that in the recent past, they have told you that TM's will be going, they now intend to torture you further by informing you if you are or are not on an "at risk list"
I find it difficult to imagine a more moral destroying, humiliating, embarrassing way to treat staff. They have already ruined your Christmas and now they are happy to ruin your New Year.
The people responsible for this need some education in humility, they are a disgrace. Lastly where are the Union, I know there is little they can do but they should be all over these sites supporting their members to the end. Conspicuous by their absence again, again disgraceful.  >:( >:( >:(

Well had the brief and still no wiser to what's happening other than "30 days consultation starts on Friday 13/1/17 .... all we ask is for honesty, but that yet again is in short supply... in the words of MD thank you for delivering a brilliant Christmas for our customers now @@@@ off  >:( >:( >:(

So all that was said about the management restructure at the depot is consultations would start for them on the 13 January?

What happened to the 45 day consultation?

If there are less than 100 redundancies then only 30 days consultation is required.

That's Livi started handing out the 30 days notification letters, I knew something was up when you see the GM hurrying in at 6am in the morning.

The 30 day 45 day argument is irrelevant, because there certainly won't be any consultation taking place, we will be given the numbers and told to go and make them work ... ST and the simple one should be hanging their heads in shame. They sold a vision of the "people first" policy at Tesco and them sold us all down the river.... Tesco not a great place to work..... and for those of your lording over other people's misfortunes all I can say is watch your backs

I don't think its time to Lord it over anyone at this time, the managers are being treated like s**t around this, & don't for 1 min think that it wont come to most of us in some way in the near future & you will be treated no different... You may have views on managers but they have family's homes etc just the same as you & I wouldn't wish this treatment on anyone...
