voluntary redundancy
« on: 13-04-19, 02:29PM »
Hi I was wondering our dept is over hours according to. Heat maps, could I ask for voluntary redundancy? They say under hours on some other departments but I could not work those areas as health related issues.  I am thinking as a lot of alternate vacancies will he taken by affected colleges from sc and deli, there won't be anything else left.

I am. Not on deli or. Stock control, I am on csd, and apparently we are over manned by 30 hours, quite how they come to. That is beyond me, clearly never worked in a store those who. Work. This rubbish out, I. Have certain health issues that unable me to do. Heavy work, osteoporosis, and still not in remission from cancer. I. Was thinking if I can't work other departments, I could maybe put up. A case for voluntary redundancy, I am on an old non flexible contract

Sad to say that Tesco took the option of voluntary redundancy, proposed by usyawn, off of the agenda.
Chances are so many people would have applied just to escape :D ;D

Is your contract just for the c/s desk ? as I believe this is the next dept they wish remove full timers off and replace with flexi contracts, you would have to wait til you have your meeting to find out what their next move is.

Is this speculation or fact  8-). I believe Tesco have too many people on flexi contracts now, in some stores, which would be another question to ask in consultation for possible new job role....do I keep my current contract status??

The direction the company wish to move is, to go through the heat map with c/s desk staff and change hours to suit the company, but the underlying problem for staff is that the hour changes are completely in the companies favor for them to move staff to their 2nd choice job. So when the new fingerprint clocking comes in the c/s desk may end up in a completely different role and no longer c/s desk, this all depends on how many staff are on the c/s desk as I believe they only require 2 staff on at anytime, so if there are 4 staff on any given day the 1st 2 would be on the c/s desk and the next staff would go onto the 2nd choice role whatever that maybe ? 

As for flexi contracts  >:( they would like all staff on these as it not only saves on sick, pensions, holidays, etc they can put you wherever they want whenever they want at very short notice.
