What happens with night shift staff on the Saturday night into Sunday on Easter Sunday. Are we still in working?

I've been at my store 16 years and we have always worked the sat into Easter Sunday. Never worked Easter sun into Mon. Don't know what other stores do but that is what we have always done .

been here forever

I work nights and we always have Saturday and Sunday as our Bank Holidays over Easter, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day for Christmas, New Year's Eve, And Sunday for all other Bank Holidays.

Our store Sat & Sun Bank Holiday, staff working whatever they haven't booked off.

Bank holiday question; I work in Express, and we're only meant to run 4 CA shifts total on a bank holiday- 2 6am opens and 2 backshifts. My usual shifts on a Monday are a midshift, say 10-6pm, and a "first come, first serve" sign-up sheet has just gone up for the next few bank holidays, without anyone who usually works Mondays being asked first.

Am I able to insist on working my usual hours on those days, and failing that can I at least insist on being given a shift? I seem to recall my union rep in my last store saying that contracted workers should always have first refusal before it goes first come first serve.

Is it not still part of the holiday review about bank holidays ?that should of been done before 1st april?

Saturday and Easter Sunday ate not bank holidays so must work as normal unless
You have requested it off as holiday

mama_bear2006

Thank you - I've only just started so wasn't sure how the Saturday into Sunday shift would work as the store won't be open at all that day. So assume we just finish at our normal time on Easter Sunday.

Thank you for helping.

I don't know about other stores but we're asked if we either want to work the Saturday night into Sunday morning or Sunday night into Monday morning based on our primary department as we tend to have a Grocery delivery Saturday night or a Fresh delivery Sunday night.

If we wanted the day off it's either booked as a holiday or we can work the hours elsewhere in the same week.

Hey guys..I'm a newbie to VLH and I don't know how to start a new post so jumping on this post  :-[this is in regard to the queen's jubilee.. i work night-shift..in our store we've been told anyone who is contracted for the Friday is entitled to it off and if they work it they will get double time and a quarter..I work the Thursday night into the Friday and am entitled to nothing..how is this fair?? Does anyone know anything in regards to this??

It's time and a quarter, not double time and a quarter. I believe you'll get the bank holiday rate for your hours from midnight until your finish time

Gems

Ahh right..I must've heard it wrong..time and a quarter is woeful don't know about anybody else's nightshift but I can't see many coming in to work for that!! Place will be empty:/ thankyou for replying:)

The jubilee for nightshift is the thurs into the fri. The bank holiday which normally lies at the end of May has been moved to the wed night into the Thursday. The Friday night is a normal night.

Gems

We have been told its the Friday night for the nightshift..that's why I thought it was unfair for anyone who worked the Thursday night into the Friday as it clearly states the celebrations start from the Thursday🤷‍♀️

oldfashionedplayer

Nights it's Wednesday and Thursday, it's the days before for it, for some reason it's the 2 days? But think only Thursday will get the payment, least that's what jj gather, yammer says Wednesday and Thursday anyhow and Friday for day staff.

Gems

I'm in Northern Ireland so don't know if it's any different..thanks for the info guys👍

Has something changed with bank holidays, was speaking to a colleague and apparently last bank holiday after dotcom pick was finished staff weren't allowed to go home and they had to do their contract. It's always been that staff would stay till the pick was finished then go home as it was a bank holiday.

Minnie Mouse

For the jubilee bank holiday it is the Thursday night for nightshift, if you work it you get paid for the shift plus time & a quarter as you can't carry this bank holiday over to another time, you can have it off paid or work it but you have to be contracted to the Thursday night to get it

Hammer10

We have been told if you work the Friday it's double time and a quarter.

you will get paid 1.25 for working it as you would a normal bank holiday plus you get paid normal time because its an extra bank holiday. if you don't work it you get paid for the day anyway. just think of it as any normal bank holiday day

You didn't hear wrong. There was an article on ourtesco about the jubilee Bank Holiday saying this but then went missing the following week. Replaced with normal bank holiday rate.

This only applies if you are contracted to work Fridays.
