Quote from: madness on 10-09-23, 11:24PMLets be honest here and call a spade a spade. You sound like a nightmare employee. You don't have to participate in all the little c**p the company does pro this pro that get involved etc but actively having a go at the top man is just stupid.

I took this to my manager at the first instance. cos I have got in trouble for this stuff before. they fobbed me off. And if I'm not wrong ,we don't have people partners anymore, very few stores do. I think I personally scared ours off. not because I'm a nightmare but because I won't take any s***.
Quote from: lucgeo on 11-09-23, 08:27AMYou should still have a people partner who is assigned to your store? The people partners now cover a number of stores in the area, they should have an email address displayed on the notice board. Ask your manager for the contact name and email address if it isn't displayed. It is very frustrating for older colleagues with long service to witness the slip shod way the company has declined. At one time this would have been seen as a serious error and thoroughly investigated! All long service rewards were sent through the internal mail system, and signed for by the recipient.You suffered the embarrassment of having this card declined, in front of colleagues, whilst attempting to pay..."dignity at work" You, as a shareholder and Tesco employee, are rightly questioning the issuing of high value gift cards, being sent without any record of receipt. "Your right to a voice"If it had been intercepted and used, then the onus would be placed on you to prove that it hadn't been used by you, once you questioned why you hadn't received it? Having your honesty being questioned and needing to prove your non involvement in the use of it...embarrassing for you..."dignity at work"It was a mistake using the F...word in the email...in print! You could plead knee jerk reaction to the embarrassment of publicly having the card declined!If you're going down...you go down fighting!!
Quote from: lfcni1986 on 12-09-23, 09:49PMThis happened me last week as well, card was not activated. Dropped an email to colleague help and the card was activated the next day.Had to email email@example.com along with employee number, gift card number etc
Quote from: madness on 12-09-23, 09:30PMPointles being a martyr. You are only there to earn a wage in exchange for doing some work. If something might benefit you ie picking up shift to cover a sickness call fine.Lets be honest risking your job because you couldnt order a T shirt that about a subject the company only pretends to give a s*** about becuase enough of the people are making a song and dance about it is a stupid thing to do.If you feel that bad about how the company is do something else.
Quote from: surlaroute on 10-09-23, 11:20PMI'm probably getting fired next week because I sent an e-mail to Ken (which he never read) about a letter he signed (that he definitely didn't sign off on personally) accompanying my 25 year service award, the £360 gift card, which in my case didn't work first time.

If you have had a disciplinary investigation, for which if you are a member of USDAW, you should have had a steward present with you, and the next stage is a final hearing and you are saying that you are probably "getting fired" then can I suggest you walk away by resignation rather than allow yourself to be dismissed? That way you have a clean record and your pension should remain intact. 25 years service is a lot to loose benefit wise.
Quote from: surlaroute on 13-09-23, 05:44AMthis has occurred to me as an option this time around, without the USDAW presence that I've never taken. The "probably getting fired" part of this is, it's only a month or so since something similar (yet completely different and not half as extenuating - it's hard to explain without completely revealing myself here as if I haven't already, only to say, honestly, I don't do this all the time, it's just been a sh*t year lol) happened and because I already have markers on my file from 3 years ago, the manager concerned has said, if it happens again no matter if the current warning is active or not, she will fire me.
