But some stores especially busy extras I don't know how it can be filled on a twilight with the shop being so busy with a heavy evening trade. What I can see however is a removal of night managers being replaced by shift leads. Likely 1 manager and rest being shift lead.
Quote from: lucgeo on 04-11-22, 10:37AMThere is a redundancy calculator on the VLH home page in the links section.This is a time you need to be discussing your options with your USDAW rep with regard time changes. There used to be a booklet all reps had explaining the differing scenarios. If I recall correctly a 2 hour window change each side of your contracted hours would not be deemed an unreasonable request.If the majority of your new hours fell into your current work pattern, it would not be deemed an unreasonable request. Going from nights to the majority of afternoon/twighlight hour shifts would be classed as unreasonable, with also the loss of premium pay. Protected pay is an option, but bear in mind it is only for a set amount of time, and any future pay increases will not be awarded to you during this transition period, until you have come down to the same rate as the rest of your colleagues. Rumours of night shift redundancy has been uttered for many years, since the last one a few years back. It does seem more probable now that stores are no longer 24/7 My advice would be until you're actually sat down and told your job is at risk, DO NOTHING, SAY NOTHING, AGREE TO NOTHING, SIGN NOTHING!! And DO NOT believe any manager who says there's no redundancies! That was the first words out of my SM's mouth for our stock control cull, hoping we'd all panic and take anything available. If you really want redundancy, then fill in the redundancy availability form for your current contracted shifts. Don't be swayed to put any different.

The company is a shambles, so just wait it out to get redundancy. They got rid of nights in my store a few years back even though it's sales were over a 1.5 million a week. The twilight shift that prevailed hit those numbers over the coming months and the same store struggles to turnover 800k a week now. They have not gone back to a nightshift since this has happened, so it looks like suicide to me in profitability, just to save a few pounds on shift premiums. Working 3-12:30 is probably the worst hours you could work. You'd never see your family at all and recruitment is constant as nobody stays to do those hours other than a few single parents to claim their benefits.
Quote from: Voulezvous on 05-11-22, 08:17AMDo any Extra DotCom stores fill during twilight hours atm? Seemingly if it wasn't for issues it would cause with distribution nightshift wouldn't be in any of the stores
Quote from: happyone on 05-11-22, 04:20PMThey took beer wine spirits off our night team but cannot manage to fill it during the day so we have to fill it over night, same goes with frozen so I don't see how they can get rid of are night team in our store. I also agree with some previous post when staff leave they are not replacing them we have had a couple of staff start on Xmas hours but after one shift they left.

BWS in my store went to day fill with no extra hrs. Needless to say it was back to a night fill within a month or so. They didn't make anyone redundant as they had just moved the BWS guys to other aisles.Frozen moved to a day fill which... sometimes works. There's three who regularly do it, but the coverage is hit and miss, so certain days there might just be one guy for 4 hours in the evening.
