Quote from: snufflesthebear on 28-06-22, 05:28PMHi, our store and is over-hours and everyone that leaves is never replaced. The department I work on is paper thin. I have my contracted shifts which I do, and they are needed, but during right hours, right place can your manager contract you to a day which is not in your availability window? Thanks
Quote from: FarmerFred on 12-07-22, 09:56AMIf they're consistently scheduling you outside of your availability windows without your agreement then do your standard contractual shifts & raise a grievance as they're not following policy.
Quote from: Redshoes on 15-07-22, 07:41AMIt's 11 hours without opt out and it happens. I get shifts most weeks with 9 hours between at least once. For a superstore with a small management team it happens. When one manager is on holiday and another goes sick then add in the managers with child care we sometimes do not have a choice. We just get on with it.
Quote from: Cinderella on 16-09-22, 10:27PMThis is still happening in my store. Almost a year of arguing with them about scheduling me outside of my availability, without even asking if I am willing to do it. I actually changed my availability, adding in the day they kept scheduling me for, but limiting the times I could do - giving nine hours of availability on the day that was previously not available at all. But that's not good enough, apparently. They keep scheduling me outside of this, and telling me I'm not fit for the role if I can't do any shifts they want. They also keep saying that Part Time colleagues aren't required to be flexible, although employment law states that FT and PT employees should be subject to the same conditions and treatment. My availability is limited that particular day that I've added (just for them!) due to medical reasons, but even that isn't good enough. I'm seriously regretting increasing my availability at all, as it's just created even more drama! I found on ourtesco a paragraph about being scheduled within the agreed availability window, but nothing about accepting the availability, following it for two months and then suddenly scheduling you wherever they want and saying you're not suitable when you object!

If you dug your heels in and said no, the manager wouldn't have a leg to stand on and couldn't make you work those shifts. A company the size of Tesco would struggle to show that they couldn't move someone from another store to cover gaps in rotas caused by absence.Long-term lack of rest affects your health and mental well-being, and you could well be storing up problems that affect you later in life.
