QuoteA major deal to supply chicken to Tesco from nearly a decade ago may be linked to the ecological demise of one of the UK's favourite rivers, according to a Guardian investigation.

I don't want decade old chicken  :D

Oh dear!! Another Senior manager on megabucks deciding this was a good idea! And was not challenged :-X  :-X

You just know a CA from stock control or the filler would have had the common sense to question this..I know I and my old team would have, and been very vocal about it!

And you just know the filler will have been thrown under the bus as having made that "human error"! No CA would have decided to security box off their own back, creating more work for themselves  ???

Tesco agrees to cost-of-living pay rise for distribution centre employees

QuoteThe pay rise has been applied to all employees in distribution centres managed by Pertemps, including those in Lichfield, Livingstone and Daventry. Pertemps noted that it hopes the pay rise will help ease the cost of living strain, while also attracting talent to the distribution centres.

Is Pertemps managing DCs possibly an attempt to 'muddy the waters' in the DC/stores equal pay issue ?

Did distribution staff not get a wage rise earlier in the year? Or was that other distributions, apart from the ones mentioned above?

Wage rise earlier in year was from last June which was paid in feb/march.

9.5% payrise this year includes 3.5% turnaround bonus which has been signed away forever :o
Dont know about other sites but Pertemps manage the agency here in Livingston.

Nomad I think the new 2022 contract that Tesco have introduced and ongoing attempts to get rid of retained pay is Tesco trying to manipulate our earnings to reduce possible compensation being paid to Stores r.e. equal pay claims..

Perhaps Leigh Day should be informed...  >:D >:D

By working with percentages and timeframes, you can pull the wool over the publics eyes. Tesco could raise one of their illegal immigrants hourly pay from 1p per hour to 2p per hour and headline it as an "Inflation beating 100% pay increase".

Similarly another article a few days ago showed John Lewis's commitment to paying their "partners" a real living wage by quoting the current real living wage figure of £9.90 an hour, and basing their 2% increase and 3% bonus on that, making no mention that not only hasn't it been updated since November last year, but the foundation themselves has said they're moving forward the new headline figure due to the unprecedented increase in the cost of living to next month, supposedly to £15 an hour outside of London and £18 an hour inside of London

We have the situation now where staff with decades of experience are training agency staff who already on more money than the trainer! And if anyone says 'join the agency then' , are you a manager..?
