Retail trade union Usdaw has balloted members working for Co-operative Group on a 10.1% pay rise and they have overwhelmingly accepted, with 87% voting in favour. The increase takes the basic hourly rate to £12 and will be paid from 1 April 2024.,so my question is yet again what strong hold do tesco have over  usdaw. >:D
this is why I left usdaw the lies lies and more lies like I've said previously lady in usdaw offices told me all union members were balloted about losing yearly bonus to get a better wage increase note the word all I didn't hear anything neither did the near 60 union members in my store who left and oddly neither did the stores union reps and there supposed to be trustees our workers union ... how anyone still pays into the farce is beyond me

100000% Tony tell me someone in usdaw isn't on the take the person who seems to accept everything Tesco throws at them the person who accepted on our behalf we should get paid below minimum wage  for 1 month saving Tesco 17 million should be removed from his post immediately don't tell me that would have passed any sort of staff ballot

Aldi have just announced the 2nd pay increase of 2024. From June 1st the starting hourly rate is going up from £12 to £12.40.
Wonder if others will follow?

I don't think we will hit 12.40 for a while yet

Quote from: rupert7 on 11-03-24, 06:51PMAs a Tesco worker, it can indeed be challenging when the company recognizes only one union. However, there are steps you and your fellow workers can take to address this situation:

Organize and Educate:
Build Solidarity: Connect with your colleagues and raise awareness about the importance of collective action. The more workers who understand the benefits of union representation, the stronger your position becomes.
Educate Others: Share information about other unions and their advantages. Highlight how multiple unions can provide diverse perspectives and better represent workers' interests.
Explore Legal Avenues:
Challenge the Monopoly: While Tesco currently recognizes Usdaw, you can explore legal avenues to challenge this monopoly. Seek legal advice or consult with other unions to understand your options.
Supreme Court Decision: Take inspiration from the recent Supreme Court decision that granted Usdaw the right to challenge Tesco's "fire and rehire" policy1. Legal challenges can lead to changes in company policies.
Advocate for Change:
Petition Tesco: Organize a petition among workers requesting Tesco to recognize additional unions. Highlight the benefits of diverse representation and the importance of choice.
Engage with Management: Arrange meetings with Tesco management to discuss the issue. Present a compelling case for recognizing other unions alongside Usdaw.
Leverage Public Opinion:
Media and Public Awareness: Raise awareness through social media, local news, and public forums. Share stories about the benefits of multiple unions and how it can improve working conditions.
Customer Support: Engage Tesco customers and encourage them to support workers' rights to choose their preferred union. Public pressure can influence company decisions.
Seek Support from Other Unions:
Collaborate with Other Unions: Reach out to other unions, both within and outside the retail sector. Their experience and solidarity can strengthen your cause.
Joint Campaigns: Consider joint campaigns or coordinated efforts to advocate for workers' rights and union diversity.
Remember that change takes time, persistence, and collective effort. By standing together and advocating for fair representation, you can work towards a more inclusive and supportive environment at Tesco.

Are Tesco removing the Extra format?

BarryZola

Yeah, in a crazy move the board have decided to close hundreds of large profit making stores for no apparent reason which will also cost them a ridiculous amount of money in redundancy pay...

biggerpicture

Is there any more information on which shore are affected please?

oldfashionedplayer

Not heard anything with it, be a good way to kill their profits though? Considering they are in the process of refitting them all lol

But I'd happily take redundancy same as colleagues at ours if they did but think got more chance of winning the lottery twice over.

fatlad

Where exactly has this info come from or is it just more rumours?

BarryZola

For clarity, I was being sarcastic. Not sure who's been pulling the leg of the guy who stated the rumour above me though. It's obviously been totally made up. It would make zero sense.

oldfashionedplayer

i figured as much but i can dream lol

fatlad

Ah, I was a bit slow on that one  8-)

Honestly, it would not surprise me. Most people cant even tell the difference between a Tesco Superstore and Tesco Extra, they have cut that much of the customer offering, the Extra brand is no longer relevant. Most Extras that have a load of extra floor space and a dotcom are being converted into Urban Fulfilment centres or leased out to 3rd party companies.

All shops were I am, have had all the extra branding that was on the gable walls removed and the whole outside painted in a new grey colour scheme, seems to be the way they are going now. Only sign that remains, is the Extra sign on the roof of the shop. Even the Welcome to Tesco Extra -insert store name here - is just now Welcome to Tesco - insert store name here-

1982dave

I bloddy doubt it I work in a extra we not long had fancy new led and neon lights saying Tesco extra massive signs at front and side of store
