That is the plan from the beginning, so they can pay less to people with skill payment, the percentage will get smaller and smaller.

That bombastic number 10.45% is for media, it is used to make the image looks better for the gullible stakeholder make them thinking dl did good job and take care of the staff really well, in short to justified all ceo and high level management salary, bonus and  share, nothing to do with us.

And again, comparing payrise and bonus is not apple to apple. Try yourself calculate base on your income, increase from september to let say when you usually got bonus, let say may.
Then calculate your bonus base on your income from april to march, a whole 13 times payday. The total hours is so much different already. It is a low financial art of a con man.

Also dont forget a sizeable proportion of the 10% payrise is legally required to ensure Tesco meets minimum wage laws.

Right after days of discussion we have established the new pay deals bare minimum so a bare minimum effort is all they will get. You get what you pay for. The shift leaders are being robbed stupid in comparison to the Team Managers who can do not a lot and the most they’ll get is a slap on the wrist from the SM.

You are right about the shift leader to manager work rate. These days the shift leader is basically a manager and a customer assistant combined. We do all their work and our own!!!

Also as a manager my working conditions have got far worse. Being a nights to days store I can get given shifts from 5am anything up to 12pm. That is some operating window and very hard to plan anything outside of work or get into a good routine.  gotta say its alot of fun being on until 12 at night into your day off then into a 5am start.
Get that as far to f*^k as you can, that neither gives you the required rest time away from work it also smacks in the face of work/life balance! Id be pushing that back to your manager, no way I would be doing that, not nowadays, with the cuts to all etc

They don’t care about work life balance in a lot of stores. They don’t bother about gaps between shifts either.

And therefore up to the manager to take a stand, I would never allow myself to be on till midnight then have a day off, no chance, I’d be telling them to run!!

10.45% pay rise is on the basic wage grades b/c. Anyone on grades D & above are getting lower percentage. So really they are Gaulle adverting on media. Anyone else sussed this out?

Not what I was told by the area rep bakers get 6.6% on there hourly rate with out the skill payment then the 90 p is added back on to give a total hourly rate and the same 4% plus in October 2020

I'm assuming a semi-skilled baker, if so their basic pay will be the £9 an hour figure this September with a skill payment of 42p, currently they're paid £8.42 an hour with a skill payment of 43p an hour, or in other words, currently they're on £8.85 an hour, their new rate will be £9.42 an increase of 57p per hour, but lose their bonus so if we assume 3% bonus on a semi-skilled baker doing 10 hours a week, they'd be on £4,740 a year currently with their £8.85 an hour and 3% bonus compared to £4,898.40 on the new rate of £9.42 without a bonus, that's an increase of £158.40 a year, 30.4p per hour, as a percentage increase of £8.85 that is a 3.3% increase overall.

I hadn't thought too much about this until just now. Assuming the bonus was paid at a similar rate to the last two years - 2.5% it's barely a pay rise at all . The pay rises are only paid for six months in the first year and 5 months in the second year. It is as the earlier poster stated 'the financial art of the conman'.
Assume an annual income of £10000. With no rises and bonus in place you will earn £20500 over the two years with a 2.5% bonus paid each year.
With the pay rise and no bonus you will earn £10344 in the first year (10000*6.88%/2) and £10499 in the second year (10344*3.57/5-12ths). A total over two years of £20833, a 2 year rise of 1.62% compared with current rate plus bonus.
It is a massive con. No wonder they can keep their payroll flat from year to year.

As long as the people claiming benefits don't get their payments inconvenienced due to a slight overpayment one month a year, that's the main thing. Apparently no-one else matters. Probably best not to increase our pay at all in future just in-case it effects someones benefit payments. Make it really easy, like. :-X

Does anyone have any idea about Dot Com Driver pay changes?

A "very helpful" leaflet was released on ourtesco giving base pay rates for drivers - lower than it is currently - and then saying to see the attached leaflet regarding an increase of the skills payment, but of course theres no attached leaflet regarding that at all.

So from September pay the base rate goes from £8.42p/h to £9p/h & the skills payment goes up to 68p so driver pay goes from £8.85p/h to £9.68p/h.

10.4% in 2 years........ then as near to a zero % pay rise as they can't afford it, which in effect would be -3% as they would be getting our bonus.
