The issue at Tesco was Shift Leaders and certain cas in Express being forced to work through their unpaid break, a paid break is definitely better than an unpaid one.

But yes, it irks me that more people aren't quitting for any of Tescos competitors, I only work Sundays (8.5 hours a week, get paid 7.75 hours) so i'm in the position where on a per hour basis i'm better off working at Tesco than their competitors, but for any other situation where you're not contracted to Sundays, any of the other big 4 is better.

Yes, also the fact that Tesco.owns 25-27% of the market at the moment compared to 15 and 16% by Sainsburies and Asda sets a poor example by Tesco. If they're the market leaders they should be paying leading rates, even Tescos management pay is below par compared to the big 4 (Sainsburies CTMs start at just above 22k a year, this is a comparable role to Shift Leaders in Express, an SM in Express at Tesco starts on 26k a year, at Sainsburies they're started on 30k a year).

What annoys me is that Asda is getting criticized for this, yet Tescos pay conditions are worse, yet the media doesn't scrutinize Tescos rate of pay.

Interesting point in the above article.
Asda to cut nightshift to  midnight until 5am.
If staff only have a half hour break, it's will be  impossible to fill a large store in, 4 1/2 hours, unless they double the amount of staff!
Even less time to replenish when you take into account set up at the start and clear off and tidying up at the end of the shift.
Absolutely clueless number crunchers sat in  head office......... probably never even set foot in a shop!!

I've been thinking of what I would consider fair. A rise to say 8.80, 4.5%, in July would be reasonable and would exceed most staffs expectations.It would only be a couple of percent above the following years rise in minimum wage. The comparator for Tesco ga wages is, I consider to be the minimum wage, since for the majority of the last few years we have been very close to it for most of the financial year. I Don't really consider it a fair rise if it is only paid for four or five months of the year. Also many of us did not see that much of a rise with the cuts in premiums in the last two pay rewards. It seems to be clear that many of the jobs that will survive their cost cutting are the more physical ones. Working grocery is physically hard. I'm in my 40s and have been doing it for ten years. I just don't move as well as I used to. I'm moved to a different aisle most days and it does seem like it's always me. Yesterday I had 8 cages of house and pet which I struggled with. Bare in mind that I have worked house and pet maybe a couple of times in the last few months. I work tins a couple of days a week and this is a massive effort for me. Anyway, the point is I feel really conflicted about working hard for this company. The offer isn't nearly enough. What would I have to look forward to supposing I spent the rest of my working life at Tesco, a knackered body and a pension that is worth pocket money.
Tesco also have one of the highest ceo to average worker earnings ratios in the ftse 100. This would also suggest that we deserve more and we are compliant in our senior management's greed. It's difficult to know how much money Tesco senior management is taking out of the business without seeing the accounts and the information in the accounts may well be summarised but I think there are a minority, of pretty nasty, people at the top taking a lot of money out of the business. I hope to be gone soon.

As no payrise is on offer the next few days would be the ideal time for an unofficial strike. No produce stocked, no BWS and no soft drinks for the long weekend and warm weather.  >:D

https://www.gov.uk/government/news/lpc-welcomes-acceptance-of-its-2019-minimum-wage-rate-recommendations

Tesco finds itself, yet again perilously close to the National Living Wage, I'm sensing a 2 year staggered pay deal where they get rid of premiums on the 2nd year (2021) for about 20p.

Night premium has to go up as well, the pay differentials for doing a nightshift compared to a day shift just doesn't make it worth doing.

In fact, i'm pretty sure this new national living wage increase means that anyone that sacrifices 5% or above of their wages (at ca/grade A level) for their pension will make them fall below the national living wage. A payrise out of necessity may have to happen.

So if WPP will reduce pay below NMW them tesco will have to offer big pay increase. From 1 april pension stand at 8% where 5% is employee contribution.

Tesco is going the way of Lidl/Aldi years ago giving no hour contracts, paying near bottom of all the supermarkets and looking for far too much from staff. Just go in do your bit and don't let the managers take the p**s. Never take any more work on without negotiation.

It has, even though it is legal, it doesn't paint Tesco in a favourable light. I think Mr Lewis needs to be aware of a common fact of the job market, people will leave for jobs with better pay and conditions.
