Quote from: beahead on 16-01-23, 08:31AMThis extra hours market is proving to be very unfair. How many times a day must people check the app? Potentially one person can select every bit of overtime. This is what's happening in our store, some don't get a look in. One staff.member is very upset. They have been a key player on the department. And now find they are unable to obtain any extra shifts. They are now after years of being loyal to company seeking alternative employment. Its like a cut throat fight.

Quote from: londoner83 on 17-01-23, 08:15AMThe problem with people snapping up all the OT on one department will be resolved when schedule to workload rolls out very soon. Departments over hours will find colleagues scheduled to under hours departments and any OT on offer could well be across multiple departments.However do believe USDAW should be raising the issue of staff having to look at work apps outside of their working hours as part of the pay negotiations. Especially if people are having to check apps (whilst not being paid) multiple times a day.....

Now ? from our recent breakdown, only 34% of overtime shifts are being picked up... there's still 94 shifts that aren't being picked up cause no one wants them due to them now likely to move you.. so yes people can be the problem but the system is designed so they are going to be rather than working with them to be honest.

Quote from: penguin on 18-01-23, 07:24PMMeanwhile back in 2010 we had this just under a different name, all our management and team leaders went to be trained up on this, it was called overtime booking system then after going to all that effort it was just dropped for over a decade, it was rumoured millions were spent on it back then and basically the cost was written off. Oh and all of the very valid concerns raised about this extra hours market now were all raised back in 2010. Talk about going round in circles.https://www.theguardian.com/business/2010/nov/14/tesco-four-hour-shift-system
