What team managers are other stores going to have. Wondering how they vary. We are a large superstore. We are having four shift leaders. And four team managers that are to be stock and admin inc cash and security. Ambient inc grocery, wh, h&b, frozen, bws, gm, f&f. And a Fresh manager.

They will be transferred over to generic team manager and given a split of the headcount until such times as they decide to leave.

Will managers have a choice as to what area they are going to be over now? Will they have to be applied for in each store?

Being removed from a role and left in limbo is I believe grounds for constructive dismissal, even while continuing to work for company under protest.

Legal advise should be sought.

If each store had the correct amount of managers before the structure change, then they just carryon as before until one or more leave.
It’s at that point the departments start to be split between the remaining managers until the store reaches the required amount.
If a store had manager vacancies before the structure change they it’s the same as above when one or more managers leave.

No manager is left in limbo, there’s a very specific structure for each store to follow depending on where each store is currently compared to where it needs to be.
All of this should have been explained in the meetings the managers had.
Detailing how the managers responsibilities would be spilt between them as the store had managers leave.

Let’s be honest here, again managers have come out of this structure change with little to no impact to them in the immediate future compared to the Team Support.
And again Managers who actually paid attention to what the company has been doing in other formats have seen this coming for a few years, and have had plenty of time to prepare for it.

I know that in my store, unless the company offer redundancy then the likely hood of the store ever actually fully implementing the new structure in the next 10 years is very minimal.
And most likely will still not have achieved it when the next manager restructure comes along.
And I know that’s the case for a few other stores on my group as well.

Not a thing! It’s been 10 days since I refused the process. Our store manager doesn’t  know any more than us! We both have emailed our people partner and still waiting on a reply?! If nothing happens by 12th our store manager has said we will continue as Team Support and will be paid our skills payment
Have you heard anything at all this week Fringegirl? Other T/S who agreed to change to off till have signed new contract, the rest haven't been told a thing.

Still not heard a thing! One colleague agreed to the changed and has taken the lump sum and has signed the contract to be off till. Meanwhile we’re still being paid Team Support pay. Our People partner and store manager hasn’t heard anything either!

Haven't heard what's happening in our store either other than we're not getting any Shift Leaders whatsoever  ???.

The only real change I've noticed is that the TMs have gotten even lazier... guess they missed the part of their Role Pack which states they shouldn't be hiding in offices unless it's to complete things like paperwork/confidential meetings  :D.

So looks like union has lead us on and are doing nothing to help Team Support in small stores. Being offered hours on checkouts rather than off til but thats the only difference. No redundancy, no negotiation, take it or leave. Membership cancelled......

It is so very wrong how they have done this to the team supports and I get the feeling that by getting away with this they will try something similar with wage clerks once all the stores are on work and pay. Regarding the TM’s they have even more excuse to be in the office now if their store is already on work and pay busy putting holidays etc into the system for their team. I’m a wage clerk and have to watch my job bit by bit being given to the managers- totally deflating to us when over the years most of us have passionately put our very best into the job

I’ve heard today that store managers have received communication saying they need to have meetings with us one to one this week. And try to ‘convince’ us to sign for Off till activity the deadline is 17th of May

that's exact what I have been told. Apparently however they will enforce the change eventually just that they want to give us another chance to agree. As TEsco have classified this as a minor change they don't actually need consent to make this change according to them.

Any update on managers, not prepared to accept the change??
Waiting in limbo??, thought whole process was over by 31 March, now told 16 may.
Why change of date.

I thought it was only happening in stores that had head count low enough to move to new structure.

I have been told I have to except the role, yes our store will see a huge reduction of managers, which will take years.
It's the fact that I have to accept the change bugs me.

My guess is you will stay as you are but in time and as things change with people going and new jobs being advertised you will not be in a position to go for them, you will be stuck in a rut. Jobs being advertised may be a while off but that means you are stuck in limbo for a long time. As future structure changes come in for colleagues you may be left out of this process as you will be asking colleagues to accept changes in roles but have refused to do so yourself. You also have a load of people coming up behind you coming off options that would jump at the chance to take on the role you have refused.
On the other side, it is soft structure so can’t be forced. You don’t have to sign.
