Over the past couple of years we have been taking steps to transform our business and set up Tesco for the future. As the retail sector and the needs of our customers change, it’s vital we make sure every part of our business is set up in a way that best serves our customers.Making sure food and other products are delivered to our stores on time is a key part of this, and so today we are announcing some changes to our distribution operation which will help us run that part of our business more simply.As part of these changes, we are proposing:To close our Welham Green Distribution Centre and move its grocery operations to our Reading site.To close our Chesterfield Distribution Centre and bring the majority of general merchandising into one site at Middlesbrough.To withdraw from the shared hanging garments distribution centre in Daventry which is currently operated by third party DHL. Its clothing operations will move to nearby Tesco Daventry Distribution Centre.To bring all our warehouse operations that are currently carried out by DHL and Wincanton in house.To simplify our management structure across all distribution centres.These changes are about improving the way we operate and ensuring the best use of our existing sites, as well as removing unnecessary complexity from our current distribution operation.We have been speaking to colleagues from all sites about what these changes will mean for them, and we will continue to do all we can to support them at this time.Matt DaviesCEO UK & ROI
Welham green to close
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...

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...I'm sorry to say, but I feel NOTHING for the team managers at my Depot, especially my shift manager!!! These past couple of weeks, our managers have walked about in groups sniping and ignorant, their anger mostly fuelled towards agency and Occupation health workers...Its been nothing short of disgraceful! Perhaps a couple I could mabey show positive regard, but they have showed virtually No grace or empathy towards the guys on the shop floor!Good bye and good riddance!!!
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.
If there are less than 100 redundancies then only 30 days consultation is required.
Re the last paragraph, Snodland were informed at 15.00 hours today. Not much talking there then.
Let's face it Tesco is not Aldi or Lidl and not natterhow much spin DL and MD put on it , the operation of the "big four" is far more complex than the discounters.Firstly , there's the product range 5000+ compared with less than 500 .Secondly, there's secondary operations (OTB, Express, Seasonal, horticulture ) being pushed through fresh DC's On top of there's the impact changes to there store delivery schedule, forced on to depots by replenish being moved from the nightshift to twilight fill.So DL and MD In the words of Edward Smith and William Murdoch , icebergs , I see no icebergs, and no matter how try to paper over the cracks with the promises of the creation "new roles" you are undoubtedly steering this ship in to oblivion
