Dropping shift

There shouldn't be an issue giving up a shift if you give them notice but they might even try to dismiss you the way it's going. Unless you have 2 years service you won't have a leg to stand on. It's goes from white collar crime at Director level to your GAs that are trying to damage items to get them on the cheap at shift end.

Ok so just to clarify I do not need to be with the company any set amount of time before I can drop a shift?  I have been with Tesco nearly 8 months.

It's nothing to do with length of service. It will depend on things like if the shift needs to be filled by someone else, how the store sits regarding hours etc. The updated heat map is due wk 3 so it will depend on this. If the dept you work in is under hours but another area is over hours and there is somebody willing to do that shift it won't be a problem.
As you have been with the company 8 months you should be on a permanent contract now. What does not go down well is wanting to drop a weekend shift straight after being made permanent. This goes for fellow colleagues and managers. It's frustrating to see how someone's availability changes after getting a permanent contract. There are often people who have been waiting years to change hours, but as you are dropping hours and not moving this should be less of an issue.

There is no minimum term to ask to drop a shift by negotiation.
However you have 2 options.
Dropping Sundays you can do from day 1, no issue there.
You can also make a flexible working request, which requires 6 months service, which you have.
There are specific reasons they can refuse these requests, and I'd suggest getting your local rep involved as it can become very argumentative.

I am requesting this as flexible working.  If I can't drop the Saturday and opt out of Sunday ie Saturday night 11-8am how does that work for my Sunday shift 11pm-8am will they let me start at 12 midnight or will they let me drop the Saturday.  It's the Saturday night I want to drop.  Thanks

There is no time limit to drop a shift but in my experience your manager may be reluctant to allow you to do so as in the past when we have had someone drop a shift senior management did not allow the hours to go to someone else, they were just lost, saving the company money and getting the operation a little closer to the RHRP.

Saturday night into Sunday morning falls into the Sunday opt out :question:

Poppy123

I can opt out but then would they not let me start the Sunday shift at 11pm which runs into Monday 8am?  Or would they let me start at 12?   I have no issue with working the Sunday night 11pm-8 issue would be that if I opt out would they prevent me working my Sunday night shift?


horatiocain

If you opt out then no hours at all  you should have a meeting and you should propose that you want the Saturday into Sunday off but are willing to compromise and continue working the Sunday into Monday shift.

Hi. I am enquiring about dropping a couple of hours from 1 shift. I am on the old contract and have been told if I change my hours in any form I have to go onto flexi contract.
Is this correct and what exact does a flexible contract entail,?  Thank you for any response and help.

who's told you this load of bull!! see an experienced union rep!!

I have been told on 2 separate occasions but 2 different managers if tesco change my shifts, hours etc they keep my old contract but if I make any changes no matter how small or for any reason it will automatically make me go onto the flex  contract.

ask the liars to show you where it states that in black and white

Dropping hours isn't the same as changing hours...... you want less time in the god forsaken place, someone has done this in our store recently no change of contract.Less hours = less time putting up with these idiots.

Going forward those who want additional hours need to increase flexibility but even then they can stay on fixed hours contract. Everybody's contract is being updated in October but even then you won't have to go on a flexi contract.
Just ask to see this in writing, you could even say that if they find this in policy for you to see you will happily sign. They will never be able to produce it so you are safe.
