Can't believe someone in the know hasn't leaked the deal yet.
Unless they've actually been waiting for everyone else to make an announcement before making a final decision!

If it's less than £12 morale just might hit an all time low. I would not be surprised if that was the case. Remember Tesco always like to try and convince us that our "Total reward package and benefits are better than the competition".

Would I be supprised if it was under 12£ a hour no ... saying that I'm anticipating the 12£ a hour but Sunday and bank hol premiums gone to cover it

If what we are hearing is true Tesco are going to beat all other supermarkets

like it was many years ago! I'm old school

rupert7

no chance, even if they did, they will take away some thing else. :thumbup:  >:D

1982dave

I've not heard a peep about beating the other supermarkets and when was the last time we did lol 2 union reps have told me diff 12£ with premiums gone but another said staggered payrise 11.60 from April till 12£ in Oct Nov  but we have to wait and see you can guarantee if it gets leaked anywhere then Tesco will announce it or are they waiting for Asda aren't Asda usdaw aswell

fatlad

Don't think they have the option to stagger the pay increase not now that everyone else is going straight to £12

We're not hearing anything yet. It's all speculation!

Raven

It needs to be more than £12/hr for them to be able to justify the "you traded in your bonus for higher basic pay" rubbish they keep repeating whenever anyone mentions the bonus we lost.  Anything less than £12 would be utterly pathetic from both Tesco and the union and I would hope that people would be quite vocal about it if that was the case.

BarryZola

And it needs to be a payrise immediately, not this 'wait until September' rubbish. If they try that it's going to be 'minimum wage, minimum effort' etc.

1982dave

12£ hour isn't too much to ask and yes especially when we apparently balloted to get batter pay rises for the loss of our bonus lol well done union with that .. would I be supprised if it was 11.60-11.80 staggered not one bit .. am I right in thinking Sainsbury is from first next month and that includes Argos and haven't they backdated the payrise aswell ..

Unlikely, minibobs is going up higher than £11.02 from April and Tesco has historically never been an intentional minimum wage payer (not including the now defunct starter/established rates of pay). If they did choose to go to the minimum until an arbitrary month, you'd have shareholder concerns about the welfare of staff (Sainsbury's shareholders revolted over Sainsbury's pay being too low), staff jumping ship to a higher payer and the PR ramifications of how the UK's largest retailer isn't paying competitively, It would do a lot more harm than good to the business.

Edit, quoted the wrong comment.

I don't think that the outcome will come as any surprise - as someone mentioned on this site a few years ago, it's a race to the bottom - and all the players appear to be determined to dead heat for that race - we seem to have settled on a position (with all retailers) on a rate of approx 5% above the official NLW - although many of them are now claiming to pay/match the "Real Living Foundation Wage" - just happens to be £12 and approx 5% higher than the official NLW.

The remaining things are just playing around with things at the edges - I notice M&S came out with improved maternity/paternity packages - but I think T did that last year - Aldi mentions it is the only retailer to offer paid breaks - and at the mo, T is the only one to pay Sunday premium (I note that Lidl mentioned a BH premium - I don't know whether other retailers still offer BH premiums) -

So in summary, it seems that T will join the £12 crowd - and potentially/probably remove some of our premiums/erode it further - and then they are simply matching what the others do - so we're price matching Aldi - and soon all retailers will be salary-matching everyone else!!

All rather boring really.

Expect premium cuts such as nights bank holiday 

NotPaidToThink

Night premium in this company is already pathetic, and with the increase to managers night premium it's highly doubtful a cut to that premium will happen! It's more likely to be increased and if not night teams will be well within their rights to severely disgruntled.

I would say it hasn't been leaked, because it's not yet finalised. They may be waiting for everyone else to announce there's and then pay 1p more. Then they can claim Tesco is the best!

overworkedexpresslad

So its about time shift leaders in express were paid more than shift leaders in large formats. we do way more than other shift leaders and are under paid mangers. i would love for a shift leader from large to come and run express for a week and see what they have to say!!!! now speaking of the pay rise. i believe managers have a call on 10am Tuesday morning but hopefully it will get leaked out over the weekend!!! someone must know.

barafear

I really don't think I'll this anticipation is worth it. There's very few things that might happen that would shock most of us.....probably going to be about £12 an hour, Sunday premium likely to be gone by Christmas if not sooner. BH premium may survive a bit longer but likely to be reduced from 25%. And I am fearing a cut to location pay for anywhere outside London.


If it is vastly different to the above, I'll happily come back and eat humble pie.

Asda have just said there paying £12.04

Raven

Interestingly, in regards to the above Asda pay offer... "Shopworkers' union Usdaw is recommending that their members accept the offer at a vote later this month." ... so they still get a say in whether to accept it or not, whereas we're just told "this is what you're getting... and this is what we're taking back for you to have it."

fatlad

Interesting too that it will come into effect from 1st July with an interim rise to £11.44 on 1st April to be in line with minimum wage.
This could leave the door open for Tesco to do similar.

Raven

Is it just me, or are their staff being robbed with that deal?
