Quote from: FruityLoopy on 07-02-23, 09:50AMThe Sunday premium will be interesting because scrapping it for new starters is one thing. Scrapping it for those longer term colleagues who do overtime is something else entirely.Lets say Betty, Nancy and Jon all joined in 2009 and work on potential reductions/counts. Both Betty and Nancy are contracted Sundays while Jon isn't. Nancy goes off sick so Jon as one of the only people trained on stock control is expected to come in and do her shift. Exactly the same work load as Betty but Jon is getting paid less.Can you imagine it? It will be the same on checkouts, Joyce who has worked for Tesco 25 years but is not contracted Sunday will not come in and be paid less for doing a Sunday than Lola who joined in 2022 is.

Quote from: NightAndDay on 07-02-23, 04:56PMThat was an underhanded disingenuous payrise when they did that, comparing the overall pay over 2 years from a year before the 2 year deal started, in effect the overall increase year on year was half what they stated (sometimes even less) because of how they did it.To be fair though, It seems Tesco learned its lesson from that, they won't be doing it again.
Quote from: NightAndDay on 08-02-23, 11:10AMThey received a lot of backlash from it, they haven't done a "2 year pay deal" since, they risk alienating a lot of staff causing them to resign for the competition if they do it again, especially in these times of labour shortages, stiff competition and the cost of living. USDAW wouldn't allow it either for the same reasons as it would mean less members.Saying that though, Rishi Sunak is toying with the idea of Workfare 2.0 to get the NEETs and economically inactive into these sorts of jobs to assuage the labour shortage problem (read, interfere with the natural course of supply and demand) don't imagine it will go down well though.
