Has anyone on here had the new produce shelving in their store? They had a trial in Ely and apparently it went really well. I went in another tesco store with the new shelving and it always looks empty.

something seems to be going on with H&B as well,they are changing it to wider shelves,to hold more stock,I assume to either cut filling hours or move it to daytime fill?

Quote from: BobbyDazler on 07-02-24, 09:25PMMy understanding is that the wages role is in large part going to the managers but the additional stuff like signing of payroll reports etc will fall onto the admin colleague (who are getting a new title by the way) which does make you wonder why all office staff didn't go into consultation for the "new role"
What is this new title they're getting?
Noticed no one has answered what the new title is but my guess is wage admin as I have asked the union this question today and they said a wage admin is a colleague admin that also does some wage work! I am sure that the wage clerks are just having the wool pulled over their eyes to make us believe our jobs have gone but in theory it has just gone to others and new technology which again is grounds for offering redundancy
No.

Wages is completely going. Each line manager will get a new tab on their My Team section which is solely dedicated to their own teams exceptions. Only they can access this. When they are not in the building either day off or holiday they assign another manager to clear the exceptions on their behalf.

TAM is staying but admin colleagues are losing access to everything on People except for dashboards and letters. It's unclear whether the admin colleague will do the payroll reports or whether each line manager signs their own.

It's also unclear at this point who puts new starter details on from week 10. I imagine Admin colleagues will get some access back for periods such as Xmas but it could be that each line managers set up their own new starters from now on.
And some of the wage clerks job pack is moving into the admins role.

Makes sense,
H and B is a joke with the tiny shelves that cn usually fit 5 big or 7 mall items, so its either a skim layer or lots of individual backsotck making a mess and getting counted out all the time.

Electronic stripping has been around for a good while. I remember seeing it at EuroSpar stores in the Canary Islands over 10yrs ago. It is a long way off being installed in Tesco stores. For a start the culture in stores would need to drastically change. Filling stock in the correct place would have to be 100% accurate at all times, merch plans would have to be implemented 100% to the planogram etc. These things should be what we do anyway but we all know the culture is rotten from the top to the bottom. Plenty of SDs, store managers and team managers who have their own ideas of how things should be whilst blatantly ignoring correct process.

Also our IT system is prehistoric to say the least.

Amen to that. People stuck in their own ways fillings at times. Don't take out of stock labels out or stick to the correct facings.

toscozombie

How I wish everyone would fill as we should ...would make my life so much easier and if I'm honest managers can be the worst offenders .I'm not putting all managers in that category only the ones I have the pleasure of following. 😉

Also there has to be respect for equipment it wouldn't be long before the ESEL
 Were hanging from the shelves broken.

100%, they would be smashed to bits inside a month in my store. Merchandising is a joke, facings are rarely what they're meant to be, and half the staff don't seem to read the labels anyway...fit errors everywhere with products merchandised sideways etc... electronic SELs would be wasted on my store.

Head office planners are an issue too. you have shelves "planned" so tight you cant fit items in even to plan. also have to line old lines in that havnt gone rtc to the end.
Then you get all these bubbles c**p and extra shelf blockers, or pos that makes the shelves a little bit tighter.
Look at the chillers trying to get items in through those "airflow" things.

oldfashionedplayer

well they are definitely getting rid of the wage clerk role as people said anyhow, but they mentioned it on feedback.

Feedback: Managers are asking how they will access attendance records for their colleagues' team when
covering leave after the removal of the wage clerk role.
Response: This information will still be available through the colleague with the skill of admin.

Quote from: 1982dave on 09-02-24, 07:18PMLet's face it a vast majority of the big wigs in Tesco wouldn't have a clue how the day to day running of a store went and would be shocked if they witnessed things .. it's like when a store gets wind of a senior management visit so they paper over the cracks and make everything look pretty so store manager looks that little bit better you never see said senior management speaking to general assistants asking how they feel ..
Always been like that, we had a director visit back in 2018, in the days leading up to said visit parts of the store were painted. All the weeds and a dead tree dug up from the carpark, leaking water cistern in the toilets finally fixed after several years. The day of the visit and loads of staff in on overtime everything running like clock work. As soon as the director was gone those of us on overtime sent home and told would we take it as time back not pay so store did not go over payroll budget.
;D ours is like that too, had one recently and all the fridges that had been leaking for 2 years often flooding the aisle had miraculously had a quick repair to them, gate was fixed at the back, overtime was being thrown around like $1"s at a club... All backstock done, all day managers in from 4am ready for the 8am visit  ???

Last time i saw the store like that, it was a refit   :D 
Honestly why, they got the hub, they get a far more honest view of the store if they just spent a couple of hours watching the CCTV cameras at random times during the day.

Wage clerk position now made redundant but redundancy pay not on the table.why is there not more outcry about this it is a vital part to ensure staff are paid correctly.I think the very least voulantry redundancy could of been offered a lot of us have been in the job for many years and now we are told going forward we now have to fit in on shop floor.union rep answer well you new it was going to happen at some point.yes and was told we would get redundancy pay.this is what we pay our union fees for years.

oldfashionedplayer

There's not much of a difference though when you look at the job role vs a GA, it's just using a bit of systems too, which they've been just slowly moving people over and training anyhow, so if you ever did an hour on the shop floor or whatever then there went your option of redundancy, cause you've shown you can do that area too... Its annoying but it's going to happen more and more to be honest with roles.. They are sly, all companies are.

1982dave

Blame the union for allowing this with the changes to the contracts you had a massive outlet on redundancies in 2019 with the metro restructuring and now it's barely happend since if at all you have had departments closed ie deli counters etc etc and from my store alone not one staff member was given a sniff of redundancy but they were told staff who were contracted 3-8 4-8 pm had to come in and do a 4-5am start on picking as there was jobs available and redundancy was not a option

rupert7

things can only get worse, sad to say this but the only people who will get redundancy now will be the night teams, if and when the time comes.its all about money and cost cutting right to the bear bones. >:D

oldfashionedplayer

A severe time change would be something that may be a redundancy option though? So that seems like some bits are missing in that like before, maybe it was shown people who were refused the redundancy had done an earlier shift at some point leading up to it etc... But like you say things can and will only get worse as time goes on, if they want rid of nights  it'll be a force people out of the positions with the workload and such, rather so they can save on paying out as much later.

The union have written to Tesco questioning why no redundancies have been offered

Tesco will say the position ain't been made redundant as most employers within a store  are now classed as Tesco Colleagues and current wages clerks will remain as Tesco Colleagues even after this change.

It may even be the case that after this change their days and shifts remain the same.

To the average man/woman in the street asking someone to work on the shopfloor within a supermarket on the same shifts they were on -  isn't a unreasonable request for that supermarket worker (which it needs to be for it to be classed as a redundancy situation).

When the new contract came in it meant no more redundancy expect if you lost your hour or got less pay.

The wage role still says wage clerk not  colleague
