Does anyone know what the new changes to contracts are.I have heard that the new contract will be flexible meaning Tesco giving new working days each week.And that there will be no more night shift premium and Sunday premium for new staff.I heard that old staff will have to sign new contract which will mean they have to agree for flexibility and some stores who have nights removing them like express stores.I also heard the hours will be changed from instead of 10pm to 7am it will twilight hours such as early at 3 for some finishing at 10 while other finishing at 12pm.

You should have already had a briefing from your line manager about the new contract and have signed it. Essentially you will give availability to when you work, and you will be scheduled shifts within that availability. Any extra shifts you can pick up on Extra Hours Market. This applies to everyone no matter what your previous contract was

OK so no big change? Will there be redundancy at some store for example my store is an express store where we still have nights however more than half have left and weren't replaced.  The management is also pressuring people to much, only recently in the last 2 months has the manager put more pressure on staff which has forced 3 people to go in the last 2 weeks and before that we had 8 other people go.  Right now we only have 12 people left at night which includes manager of nights and 1 shift leader and no we weren't told anything by the manager, not a thing.

So how does this new thing in October work for fulltime permanent long service staff ?

@lollypop,in what  way? New contract is serve,pick and fill,so everyone should be trained on those areas,(if you dont have dot com i assume you wont be trained to pick)

I have an question regarding the new contract I know they will be removing premium for Sunday working and also bank holiday will that start with the signing of new contract.Also I heard from my manager that there will not be any night shift premium anymore especially for new staff. Is it true you have to increase your availability?  For example let's say you aren't available expect for the hours you do for example 20 will the contract state you are bound to do extra hours it you cant.

There's plenty of information on Colleague Help @Bobmay.

Sunday premiums are the only 'premium' to be removed for new starters on/after July 24th, 2022.

Bank holiday and Night premiums are not affected, at the moment, unless the schedule to workload system has you working hours that don't qualify for said premiums.

re new contracts

Nothing has been mentioned in our store by management, can we just put down our contracted hours and then pick up overtime on market place? Or do we have to show availability each week ?

Work colleagues are getting upset as they don't want to do extra hours.

I was told that people on part time will have to do more overtime when needed and be flexible in their availability.  Last time in the store I worked at people who couldn't do extra hours and days were given redundancy.  So I will not be surprised if they do this this time.

Bobmay you do talk some amount of rubbish. You are as well saying the moons made out of cheese and the world is flat.

Attached is what was sent out a while back, there's no need to do overtime, or be flexible, flexi will be the same as everyone else come October. So up to you on working the hours, highly doubt the redundancy though 🤷�♂️ You cannot view this attachment.

You know the really funny thing about this extra hours market, back in 2010 a system almost the same as it was set up at vast cost, managers trained up, system tested out and to be fair in the test stores it worked well, then after all that someone said no lets no bother. 12 years later and its back under a new name, I think last time it was called overtime booking system.
Do not let anyone tell you there is not a decent job and life beyond Tesco.

Ha ha yes what a flop it was I do remember this, only good thing about market place is to work across different stores if you want too.

Also coming is that all managers will need to do all there own coding, all of wage clerk jobs.  That's on trial & happening now.

How often are you allowed to change department? there is a girl in our store who joined about March on one department, applied and got a job on another department around July and is now wanting to apply for another internal position on another department.

I was sure they used to only let you move once every 3 months.

If the girl is good at her job, has experience and knowledge and is willing to learn, there's no reason why she can't apply for, and get, any other vacancy being offered instore ???
A multi skilled colleague, who is keen to learn, shouldn't  be held back, merely because they are new, and haven't earned their metaphorical stripes as yet! 
I'm not aware of any time restraints on applying for different roles within a store ???

It will be on store by store basis.Not like before.

I thought a contract was binding it sounds like the Tescos one aren't worth the paper there written on
