There is enough legitimate reasons why people are hacked off without these clowns spouting drivel.

In our group (East Anglia), there are delivery area changes coming along.
But why on earth do they want to do it on the run up to one of the busiest times of the year is beyond me.

Are these the same changes that you heard were going to be implemented at the end of September?

Who cares why. Just put your agreed hours in and go. It's the 4th of November and our store is dead. Even with Halloween, Christmas and bonfire sales all happening at once.

Has anyone ever been hauled over the coals because of their availability? I find it a mixture of amusing and downright pathetic when we're having our daily Team 5, and after mentioning the department availability for the previous day, it'll often be followed with a "...well it's not really down to you guys...but try to keep it up anyway..."

No, it isn't down to pickers - so why is it used as an indicator of their personal performance? I'm sure they wouldn't start on me now because I've already told them of my scorn about this, and it generally seems to be newcomers they like to intimidate. But personally, I would LOVE to be told off for having bad availability, simply because I could ask them for practical solutions to counter my unacceptable behaviour.

If they are performance managing you then they have got to according to the rules make sure you have the tools to do the job with and that includes the store being mapped correctly so when you go to mod 3 shelf 4 3 items in what you want is there and you do not have to go hunting, nor are you to be expected to go to the warehouse to pick either you pick from the shop floor only.

Anyone worked out the answer to 11 hours rest period between shifts? Ours went from illegal and massive shift overhaul to people being asked to come in, get paid but NOT clock in or out.

To paraphrase the Man of Steel from Batman vs Superman,

"Dot Com is dead. Bury it. Consider this mercy". >:D

Seriously, dot comedy is a waste of time and resources. Bin them.

We still have a couple of drivers working illegal shift patterns even after the supposed changes. Manager & team leaders still don't seem to know the law. Also lots of drivers being asked to work overtime shifts which are illegal.

 Yup. Drivers asked not to sign in and out but show up and get paid. I'm assuming this invalidates insurance, means drivers are stuffed if there is an accident or fire in the building. Also surely that's book fiddling?

Corporate that size singing about profits and execs walking off with chunky bonuses should know better.

Are there any rules that a team support would be breaking by giving the easy runs to his favourites?

0800 374199 Any store being asked to do anything like that need to report it, the whole thing is a shambles and should have been looked at by now. The company will hide behind the new training the drivers and managers will b responsible

Are they also being asked to falsify the van log book entries?  All in all this is serious s*** and the drivers and the union reps should be telling the managers a big fat NO!

Runs top to bottom through life, prime ministers' have their friends in cabinet ( or the enemies they need to keep close ) council gang leaders give their favourite road sweepers the shortest roads.

To expand on that, although I am not a legal expert, I suspect your managers are exposing themselves to criminal charges up to and including corporate manslaughter in the case of a driver involved in a fatal accident while driving outside the legally permitted hours.
