Pay Review 2022

I really cannot see that this review will be any different - unfortunately, our competitors have already paved the way - they're all paying around the £10 mark - which would be a 50p increase on what we're on at the mo. The NLW (for over 23) went up by 59p.
So potentially, Tesco might push to £10.10.

Given their recent history, Tesco may well go with a two part offer again - I'd be interested to see whether we go back to a two year deal - probably not - given the uncertainty of inflation and how the NLW might change -

Someone mentioned on here that we might get any rise from June (instead of the standard of the last few years being Oct or Nov) - if June is the case, then I can see something like:

Increase to £9.85 in June, with another increase to £10.20 in March 2023.

I don't know where we're going with the Sunday premiums - again - if we compare to competition, there is no reason for Tesco to keep them.

So, yes, anyone that works Sundays and/or BHs regularly will probably be worse off - but don't worry it will be offset by the news that you can now get £1500 per year of discount!!

Yes, and just be glad that you're not getting a bonus. We wouldn't want that would we?!?

Union rep here (boo! Hiss!).

I have a zoom call tomorrow at 10am to be briefed on the pay negotiations. Before I do that, I'd like to give you my thoughts on what will/could happen. I've been a rep for 12 years and been a member of divisional councils in the past. I've worked for Tesco for 16 years. So perhaps it's an educated guess.

First of all, I hope we can get, at least, over £10 an hour as a base rate for all grades. I was sent an email last year from the Union that wanted me to ask my store what was most important to them, for the sole purpose of taking that information to the negotiations. An overwhelming majority of people told me that their number 1 priority was a real terms pay increase to keep up with rising bills. I can't speak for everyone who works for Tesco but I think many of us would share that opinion. Do I think we'll get over £10 per hour? I'm not so sure. Having talked to my SM this afternoon, he seems a little less sure now about that as he did last week. He said he's heard "rumours" but couldn't elaborate any further.

The frustration from that lies in the fact that the distribution arm has just negotiated a massive pay rise for their members. Don't get me wrong, it almost resulted in a strike action but they put their people power to good use and got a great deal from what they offered initially. That is the power of one member, one vote and until we get that back (raise it through your forum process), we won't have anywhere near the negotiating power.

Ideally, I hope tesco recognise the work we have all put in over the last few years and reward us accordingly with a pay rise we can be proud of. Personally, I think thay removing Sunday premiums is a red line that the union will not cross. However, to pick up on a point that was mentioned earlier, people CAN BE worse off after a pay negotiation. It has happened before. But it was a small number of people who were affected and 97% of people were better off.

I know there is a hatred for the union on here but I do not believe that the union seek out a bad pay deal for members and non members alike. They take the best deal that is offered to them without having to strike.

That's all. Fingers crossed for tomorrow...

Think it's fair to say discount allowance is increasing to £1500 a year as till receipts are already showing this.

I had an e-mail t'other day to say that when I exchange clubcard vouchers to pay towards my TM bill, they will no longer be worth double their value after May.

In other morrisons all staff get 15% discount and no limit. They also get 2 other friends and family card to give to people who don't live at the same address and they get 10% with a limit of £1000. Tesco could help a lot of staff out with an additional card

thats actually pretty decent....which means we won't get anything like that

As always it is interesting to read the thoughts on the upcoming pay review The taking away of sick pay from older contracted staff from day one must have been thrown into the negotiations? Tesco always use the argument that equality on every aspect of pay is only "fair." I wait with baited breath..
I owe my success to having listened respectfully to the very best advice, and then going away and doing the exact opposite.

Discrimination if they do that it not our fault we have given the company the best years or in tescos case worst years of our lives.

Hoping for the best.

It's the hope that kills you. This is gonna be pretty lame. Better to be a realist when it comes to this company.

Ok, makes sense to keep the Sunday Premium for those currently contracted to Sundays otherwise they would have got a pay cut not an increase. I guess they will just wait for people contracted Sundays prior the change to eventually leave or move to other days and phase it out that way.

What about overtime on Sunday? I'm in dotcom and I'm pretty sure I'm the only one that's actually contracted that day everyone else is overtime

I would have thought if they wanted to phase the Sunday Premium out they would only keep it to those currently contracted Sunday.

It does seem a bit unfair that a new starter could be made to work Sunday shifs as overtime (lets face it they do make you) while others not contracted to Sunday but have been there a while will be get over £12 an hour and you are there earning £2 less for the same job.

A gradual phase out makes more sense.

Obviously this is not what I want to happen but it seems more logical.   That way Tesco can just wait for the ones contracted Sundays who receive the premium to just leave over time.

so at a guess this could be the last year of Sunday premiums. surely they wont keep staff ion different rates for long. unless they are expecting to make things even worse then they are and have even higher turnover of staff!

A union rep told me that Tesco wasn't able to leave anyone currently worse off than they are, it might be the only thing USDAW has done right by.  So keeping the Sunday Premium for those currently contracted Sunday makes sense.  Like I say, I'm going to assume Tesco will try and phase it out by hoping, and maybe pushing, many of those contracted Sunday either out the door or lure them into different days.  That way they can do as they love to and fill Sundays with 18 year old kids.
