Quote from: keef1894 on 15-10-22, 06:38PMSorry I can't seem to see how to create a new topic. As service team support are you expected to get your holidays covered or is it up to the manager to make sure there is cover so someone can cover my job whilst off?Ref: starting new topics. Please read VLH Supporter Benefits
Quote from: Nightproduceworker on 20-10-22, 10:30PMMyself and couple others on nights are being mentioned to put forward for this, my own history with the company, I've had opportunity before, messed around in the past and taken the p**s our of. It's a massive grey area ahead as nights going in alot more stores in the new year with plenty of changes. By doing this save my job? The equal pay claim decision in February. There is alot going on and I'm not sure what to do. The money itself doesn't seem worth it. But it depends on the nights and redundancy offers as I feel this is an opportunity to keep those they feel are worth keeping on work ethic and age. As alot of people on our night crews are either injured or old now.
Quote from: lucgeo on 21-10-22, 04:46PMThere's a protocol and procedures to follow regarding redundancies instore. It is not decided by the store, as to who to keep, but by different elements. Dept to start with. Everyone will be looked at, then it's hours/shifts on offer. Each member has a criteria scoring, if applying for same role/hours etc...length of service, attendance, extra responsibilities for being a rep or first aider get extra points. If involved in a redundancy situation, NEVER go into a meeting without a witness, NEVER believe what the store manager says, NEVER listen to what other colleagues think or say, or any doom and gloom gossip and rumours! A designated redundancy manager will be there to talk you through, answer questions and give written records of every meeting! With personal experience I have witnessed numerous colleagues being told a load of c**p, by senior managers and SM, to scare colleagues into accepting a drop of hours/shifts to save on the wage and redundancy budget!
Quote from: whatajoke2019 on 22-10-22, 10:15AMI've found this on Colleague Help:There is no change to sickness entitlement because of the new contract, but as part time flexible contracts are being removed, the absence percentage calculation will change for these colleagues, and will be aligned to the current calculation used for all other colleagues.Pay for absence will continue to be in line with the policy. When colleagues are paid contractual pay, they will be paid based on what they would have earned had they been at work (the same as before).So, to me, that would imply those colleagues who've been with the company long enough to be paid from day one will continue to do so?Wouldn't be at all surprised if Nights goes in our store next year. Delivery volumes are much less than they used to be, say, six months ago. Even on the nights it feels as if we're short staffed it somehow, on the whole, seemingly gets done. I know several of us would take the redundancy and run!
