Surprised with the "delayed reaction" to this news - excepting newish starters of course.
We all knew this was coming (i.e. most of us wouldn't get any sort of payout) when the record breaking 10.5% pay increase was announced in a big fanfare!!

Rather than quoting 97% of workers will be "better off" - might be more enlightening to know what percentage will be 10.5% better off, or even 8% or 6% or 4%.

Anyone that works Sundays/BHs and where that % of hours is anywhere between about 25-40% of their total hours will fall into the "better off by less than 4%" - even the ones that are worse off will be getting a "much reduced" payout due to Tesco's method of calculation.

I’m definitely on time and 1/2 and not 1/4  ??? Very strange
You will be on time and 1/2 at the moment as time and 1/4 does not come into effect until July

I stand corrected :-[ you are both correct My 2 friends had been told that they will be getting time and a !/4 but they have had a look at the pay slip and it seems they are getting time and 1/2 so it would seem they will also be in the same situation as you which they did not expect to be in  :(,

Emailed union . Trying to get a straight answer off them is like banging your head against a brick wall >:D . The way it is worked out I will be getting less than half the amount extra in my 4 weekly wage than someone who doesn't work a Sun on same hrs as me. Can't see how they can justify not giving a transition payment . At least it would take some of the sting out of this. I am a small amount better of than in 16/17 but nowhere near as much as someone who doesn't work a Sun.  Time to leave the union .

Hammer 10 I feel the same over 20 years under my belt and I would go that extra mile befor but not now. How do you know your not getting any payout? I did not think the letters had gone out yet .

Rising costs and a pay decrease for the lowest paid workers. Less money less pace.

How was the calculation made when moving from double to 1.5?

Clearly, there wasn't a "10.5% pay award" to offset any loss - so that might have been the only difference?

Or did ALL double time staff receive a cushion payment?

If that is how pay out is calculated I won't get a pay out disgusted with them after the pay rise which they keep bragging about I will be about £3 a week better off . It is so unfair the lucky ones who work days Mon- Sat have had a nice pay rise I bet they are more than £3 a week better off .when the got rid of np1 it was worked  out from the year I worked days went on days for about 6 months then back to nights I'd been back on nights for over a year but the wrong year apparently didn't get a penny in pay out so sick of constantly losing money every time we get a so called pay rise  :'(

I sympathise with you, This is the second pay rise someone has lost money to accommodate me getting a rise, I will be making my feelings known when we have the pay review meeting just as I did when my colleague was losing money for nothing other than working the twighlight shift.

It stinks, we know and it they know it but there is nothing other than voicing our displeasure that we as GAs can do. As you say the Union seems weak to the point of being ineffectual it would be nice to know what they were doing while rubber stamping this at the national forum pay review, Which only members of the union can be a part of by the way.

But yea if the only way for us to get a pay rise is to stiff our colleagues then I dont want one.

It looks like sometime from 2020 we might loose remaining premiums so tesco could pay 9 pound per hour .

We have all said the same from the time it was announced and they started to take away the night shifts extra money.

They are not saving money in all stores where the night shift went. It was short sighted in a few. Some are spending more money as assistants are distracted helping customers and have to take more care.

It was a very short sighted descision, but don't worry it will come round to hit them the face. Problem is, the rank and file will suffer even more for another bad descision.

Totally agree with you Hammer 10. Do they really expect us to work as hard for time and a quarter  as we did for double time? over 20 years I have worked for this company and my pay rise is £1.20 a week pathetic. I will definetly be on a permanent go slow now

The TMs are not in support of the loss of premiums constantly pressuring people to do more for less money. Meanwhile Dave Lewis is creaming 5 million a year a nice pay rise from last year. Other than the few FT staff left the t&cs are no better than a Victorian workhouse. The SM announces more staff are coming but how many will stay.  You’d be better off working on the side and claiming all the government subs.

We are going to have to get used to cuts in Premiums as it stands , No Unions, go slow or threats to boycot Sunday work , night work is going to stop it, and calls to shop in another other store or telling family and friends not to shop in tesco  8-) ,  Its about Survival , we just have to look at the last few weeks to see how many Companys in retail are clossing store or are on the brink of bankruptcy   , think it was pounland in the news yesterday , mothercare , marks ,toys r us , matlins  , House of fraser today :(

If we get a payout, and it's a big if, it's  the 27th July pay day.

Working out the difference from a month on time and a half now to time and a quarter the bonus for me would've been around £700, but because I'm 20 pence yes TWENTY PENCE better off a week now because of this 'amazing pay rise' I'm getting absolutely nothing.

Expect nothing, Tesco will only shatter any expectations you had and give you nothing. Laughable really.
