Thanks Loki. This is really helpful.

Looks like we could be finding out sooner rather than later. I wonder if this means that consultations will be starting in stores before March then?

22 years of paying money that could have gone on a good holiday..

I no longer see any benefit in being part of USDAW, they hold no weight whatsoever,
a simple & easy 'opt me out' would be much appreciated  :thumbup:

Fight for 'US' USDAW !! At the absolute least... Negotiate the annual pay increase.

When will you be able to tell us which stores will be closing?

Closing stores is never a decision that we take lightly. Over the next few weeks we will be finalizing that list and will be having individual conversations with those Store Teams all of which we will be hoping to do by 1st March.

So its 43, not 42 or 44? So the list isn't finalised? !!!

Once the first list is finalized and they make there minds up for definite which stores are to close whats to say they will not go to a phase two and close even more stores / shops or even pull out of the petrol station partnership with Esso and any other partnership agreements they have ? ,  ??? ??? :o :o 8-)
As we all know Tosco love to do things in trials / stages and phases just look how they went about the stock reduction programme , Team leader fiasco and the right ours right place etc etc . if things do not improve once the first batch of stores have been closed they might just start phase two and who is to say that some distribution centres are not on a list for closure either in the future if they are underperforming , nothing and no one is safe at the moment ?  :-X :-X.

You're right, just curious, anything could happen.

Through this, there will be an opportunity for colleagues to take part in 1-2-1 conversations about the shape of the organization and how it affects them as individuals.

Let's hope these 1-2-1 conversations are actually taken seriously to find out what can be improved, and not just something written down by a line manager and filed, never to be seen again.

There is no news about the UK night operation apart from the usual scaremongers trying to suggest otherwise in order to make a name for themselves.

Does that mean no pay rise this year 2015 ??? Teesport are still negotiating the 2014 pay rise so they better fight  hard for a decent one

Just a thought but I believe that are no 24hr stores in the Rep of Ireland, they all close midnight until 6am. I presume this is the big factor in the decision to move away from night shifts there. Unless Drastic Dave wants to move away from the 24hr format in the UK it would seem less likely to happen here.

Does anyone have a comprehensive list of the elusive '32 Offices spread around the company'? Would be interesting to know how many employees this takes in, especially as a 30% cut in costs will mean hundreds, if not thousands of jobs, and no small amount of redundancy packages.
