Quote from: kaled78 on 18-12-22, 10:10AMmy manager is still saying,if he comes in the front door and see's his staff working on other departments,they will be coming straight back to where they belong!

Feel like we might be at the same shop- he a fresh manager by any chance? 😂

Ours say the same 😂, system will throw like (random names) Dave who knows BWS to work over on health and beauty, and humera who normally works on health and beauty to go onto BWS..

Might make things more fairer in a gender equality sense, compared to all women being only on bread, h&b and toilet rolls.. Which is something I very much want to see play out considering all the currently complaints they give 😂.

Equal work for equal pay

It will be interesting to see how they enforce it, as I dare say some people would come in and say "I'm not doing that" and remain on their original department.

Primary role will always remain primary role.
Every dept is expected to run tight. Any dept that has an over investment will be the first to see colleagues moved. There are areas that are over invested in hours as we all agree that they are expected to run too light, the new system will probably disagree.

If your hours are in the right place, you will probably remain on your primary department but all those who start earlier than headmap says is necessary run the risk of being put elsewhere in the store.

My store got me to do ocupational health test which resulted in me staying in my job role and not going on any other departments at all

What a very sexist comment ... Would even say 'old-fashioned'.
I know female colleagues who work meat and dairy without fear or favour. I've known male colleagues from other departments who've managed half a shift on meat!

to be honest never noticed any women lugging pallets of beer and water,etc around :-X

Not thst sexist to be fair, we haven't had a new one at ours work on a heavier aisle in many years... Temps are always assigned based on gender 🤷�♂️, those that stay end up again, assigned by gender..

There's people that put in a lot of work and there's people that don't, regardless of gender I agree, but when it's sectioned off like that and allowed that's something that needs to be looked at, but it's a common occurance across the business, so with the new system assigning people, it should atleast mean that everyone learns different areas, everyone experiences different departments and understands tbe work another colleague does on that department.

It's a better system than " all the girls to X" guys to produce / pop" and expected same outcomes 🤷�♂️.

I do see that some different time shifts like twilight women will be on produce and such, but it's a constant night problem where if its filling its a nope not sending them there.

Best BWS worker in my store is female. I do produce and work quicker than half the males on there

Mr Brightside 24

Can anyone post the actual link or post the the actual proof that anyone on a pre 2005 contract doesn't have to go on checkouts... Would help solve an argument with a manager at my store!

Ask your MM to show you the paper work that cancelled the pre 2005 agreement.  Contact your union.

Mr Brightside 24

So the argument she gave was the new contract says *general assistant* therefore I'm to go on tills

Sherwoodforest

Its everyone is equal contract,so tiil staff can fill and vice versa,the 2005 never covered self serve or scan as you shop anyway,if you work nights the guidelines was store manager should agree if or how many need training,if your on days it should be everyone unless a valid health reason prevents it

lackofinterest

everyone is now "tesco colleague". absolutely irrelevant whether you go on checkouts or not. if you are in the union you should have had several emails from them stating the 2005 agreement still stands :P

"no checkouts" means self serve or otherwise. a checkout is a checkout is a checkout!!

Literally, most of produce colleagues in my store are female. Same with meat. Some females can't work heavy aisles but same with males, some can't work heavy aisles either.

At our store female are not allowed to work on produce always been the rule since it opened 10 years ago

FarmerFred

That would be unlawful discrimination
