Simple - ask to see the official Tesco people policy that states that is the case.

Of course you can book Christmas day as unpaid your manager just wants you to work extra hours

Checkout the Partnership Agreement.  Working on Christmas Day is specifically stated to be Optional for all staff.  How you cover it - holiday, unpaid, etc, etc, is entirely up to you.  The important thing is that you cannot be required to work.

A family member has been told they have to book New Year's Day off as their dept is closed that day and therefore has to book it as hol. However they have been asked if they want over time on a different dept which they do. Do they get paid hol and overtime. Thanks.

If it’s a normally contracted shift, they will get the time plus the appropriate premium, and provided they do full shift, ie the same as their normal contracted shift, a day back as BH

Even if they work on a different dept they can get a day back? They normally work 2 to 6 but will be working more hours that day 10 to 6. Cheers for your reply.

Still surprised how many people still do not know the law on Sunday and Christmas working.  Nobody, even if contracted, can be forced to work on either of these days, if you are contracted to work on Christmas day you can have unpaid or holiday if you have any left, the only way you have to work on a Sunday is if this is your only contracted day this is because if you do not you will in effect make yourself unemployed, if you are contracted more than one day you only have to give four weeks notice that you no longer wish to work Sundays, but remember you lose a day Tesco or any company are not obliged to make your hours up, just to clarify Sunday Christmas day and I think good Friday are religious days and are protected by law.

They won’t get a day back they only save a day from their entitlement if they still have some left. If they have no entitlement they get paid at the normal premium rate if it’s a Sunday or bank holiday they are working.
