Quote from: Redshoes on 24-08-22, 08:50AMWith the longer trading hours on a Sunday it's different for us. We open at 0800 and close at 2200. We have a high level of contracted people on Sundays but even so it can be difficult covering shifts. It's the day after the sat night out that is the issue for us. Premium does not come into it. We do have a bunch of people that seek out Sunday overtime but not enough. Saturday night is far harder to cover, anything after about 1700 on a Saturday are the the hardest shifts to cover. We do have people who have opted out of Sundays. They do sometimes pick up shifts but not often. For us, the majority that have opted out have done so because of the Saturday night out. I once had a student still on a temp contract who said he had done his share of weekend working so asked me to move his hours. He was taken on to help cover the difficult weekend shifts. He did eventually get off weekends but by applying for a different job within store.
Quote from: Nomad on 24-08-22, 10:34AMihavequestions23 I believe if the majority of your Saturday night shift hours are in Sunday (after 0000 hours) you must be allowed to drop that shift.
Quote from: ihavequestions23 on 23-08-22, 11:50PMI still can't believe that. Tesco are making more money than ever and are taking all the benefits off new starters. Just another big business hoping to make more money by paying as little as possible to people who desperately need it.
Quote from: Redshoes on 25-03-23, 11:14AMDropping Sundays has nothing to do with being a flexi worker but they don't have to give you a different shift, generally speaking it would also mean a drop in hours.

Quote from: 5fdp on 25-03-23, 06:36PMYou can drop below 16hrs if thats what suits your situation. Eg some students only work a sat .

It's wrong to say colleagues cannot drop below 16 hours, they can, however with everything Tesco does it's not straightforward!If you joined after the contracts changed in Oct last year, then you can drop to 12 hours, no less!If you joined before then, then you can drop to 7.5, no less
Quote from: Sherwoodforest on 26-03-23, 12:02AM. If I change my mind and don't want to work on a Sunday, can I do so?Shop workersIf you work in a shop, you can decide at any point that you want to stop working Sundays even if your contract includes Sundays. To do this you need to give your manager at least one month's notice, using the Sunday Opt out form. This is to enable them to re-organise their workschedules.You should be aware if you opt out of Sunday working you will be reducing your contracted hours. Your manager may be able to offer you alternative hours elsewhere but they are not obliged to do so, this will only be possible if suitable hours are available.Shop colleagues who are employed to work only on a Sunday cannot opt out, instead they would need to either find an alternative position without a Sunday contract or resign from their position at Tesco.
Quote from: Redshoes on 26-03-23, 05:00PMThe company have set a target of a minimum of 16 hours for new colleagues and for existing to have the chance of taking on additional hours before recruiting new colleagues. However if the colleagues don't want or can't do the 16 hours they don't have to. So basically the company can't enforce less than 16 hours but colleagues can opt to take on lower hours. It's like the 3.75 shifts. We should not be issuing less than 3.75 on extra hours but colleagues can opt to add odd hours to existing shifts. If you need to drop hours, Sundays or otherwise you can but you need to stay above 7.5 hours a week but this should not be the norm, the norm should be 16+, so if it's in support of a colleague less than 16 hours is allowed.
