Bank Holiday working
« on: 02-06-21, 03:25AM »
Hi,
I'm a part-time flexible worker. My core hours are 10-4 Sunday, 4-10 Monday, and some core hours on a Wednesday and Thurs. As I work Mondays does that mean I have to work every bank holiday Monday? I was looking through the working hours April 2021 policy and it states....
 
"If you are a Part time flexible colleague you can have core
hours on a Sunday that are worked each week. You would
not however have an availability window or be required to
flex up on Sundays or Bank Holidays."

Does this mean it's basically tough luck if my core hours are on a Monday so I have to work all the bank holidays?

As you are contracted to Monday’s you need to book holiday to be sure of having a bank holiday off.

That's intersting at my store there are lots of staff contracted to Mondays who flat out refuse to work bank holidays, as they have been there since 1965 nobody does or says anything and they get away with it... result, others are hammered all day as it's always short staffed. Then the next day they all waltz in and complain that routines haven't been done or things left in a mess... wonder why., some of them don't even speak to the manager about it, they'll just not turn up on the day and send a message saying they decided to have the day off. It's taking the pee how a hardcore of staff do what they like and the remainder get all the work dumped on them, and no action from management

Those who joined after January 2009 can be made to work a certain amount of bank holidays, anyone who started before that has the right to say no and management can do nothing about it.
Do not let anyone tell you there is not a decent job and life beyond Tesco.
