I owe my success to having listened respectfully to the very best advice, and then going away and doing the exact opposite.

Certainly is Project Pace. And many doubted it as a mere study.

Just 38,000 further job cuts to be announced then?

1000 job losses, but creating 500 jobs at 2 dcs

I believe the new roles the "News" is reporting are the work level 1 operational roles that will replace the Redundant management positions.
These role will be across all remaining DC not just 2.

I am struggling with the Numbers to be honest.

2 DC's close
All remaining DC's lose half of their Managers.
1,000 is conservative I think.

My Opinion is exactly that, Mine.  Based on my view of what I know , see and what I would do.

I think that they are hoping that some staff from the closing DCs will transfer to other DCs .

Dave is getting savvy with getting the news out there as soon as, rather than it being leaked via 'other' sources.  8-)

For the cynics, I hate to say I told you so. I heard of these moves a long way back but although pressurized and having my mental state questioned by others on this site I was unable to state where I got this information as it would have made me identifiable. I am in fact pleased that is out in the open now and I am looking forward to reading others thoughts and comments.
I don't believe the information disclosed today is the end of it and I agree with Duracell I think 1,000 is a very conservative number.  >:(

We all know that Deputies in express are going. Surprised that hasn't made the news as there must be over 3000 of those shops (that's what I got told when I worked there).

The same for Welham Green ,but it depends on wether you want to move or you already live in that direction . WG is an old DC with people who have been with the company for a long time . I think most of them will take the redundancy.

I heard Tesco had a total of 2600 stores nationwide across all formats. Needless to say, more pain will be coming.

Is Welham Green the last Tesco DC with the old Blue Book agreement or had it changed in recent years?

Thanks Pick to cube. 
Take the money and run. Weybridge was on the Blue Book agreement but voted out of it but kept the Tand C's with regards to the redundancy agreement.
Sadly Welham's days have always been numbered.
Best wishes to all. There is life after Tesco.

The biggest laugh,if that's the the right term,is hearing staff being lectured on unfounded rumours being spread. As usual everybody is pleading ignorance but to keep denying what this site has been correctly saying for months makes tesco look ridiculous and callous. If they had at least given better warnings that could at least given staff affected some time to look elsewhere for employment. To see how far this company has fallen is gutwrenching. So many staff didn't want to believe it. They do know. He wasn't nicknamed drastic Dave for nothing. There are so many managers at breaking point while the favoured few swan about. Time to bail out if you can although easier said than done.
