Aye and year on year growth in sales, growth in profit, decreases in debt are also good indicators.

Maybe save the predictions for mystic meg.

Just do your job and don't give a care about the structure changes. It'll be good for Dave's wallet, all the young team that are getting too comfortable and for all the old timers a nice early retirement. The best thing would be voluntary redundancy.  Have seen too many screwed over while others who are desperate for redundancy can't get it. Tesco is going down pan.

I have heard there is a trial starting in a few weeks, that will see everything, but soft roll, being brought in.
Sticks, batons bread etc, not to be made in store.

Only needs half the staff (a few bakers to bake off and make soft, and pakers to continue to do what they do currently)

Bakeries to "close" at 6pm.

With no power comes no responsibility.

Not trying to scare anyone, was told everyone on a full time contract would be offered redundancy or a flexi contract. Anyone else?

Sounds like bovine excrement to me. Full timers may be a dying breed, but it would still cost way too much in redundancy payments if a significant percentage chose to tale the money and run. And personally I'd bite their damned hands off it was offered to me.

What's happened to the full time bakers at these trial stores, have they been offered redundancy?

We hardly sold any bakery in the Express store I used to work at, baguettes, bloomers and rolls would sell out but nothing else. Reducing quantity (and therefore hours spent baking) makes sense as it's just a waste of time and food otherwise.

Redundancy only takes place if your job is to stop existing.
It's not okay to tell people they are redundant if you just want to reorganise work which still exists.

I hope nights to days happens in my place. The day shift will cope fine with the amount of staff they are getting. For the first time in years all the day-shift managers were on the floor this morning. The night managers are still hiding in the office and disappearing early when everyone is being asked to stay on to complete the job.  Most the staff would run at first chance of redundancy not because they dislike working but because the don't like what Tesco has become.

Hi all,

This is an update regarding the redundancy overpayment.

After some back and forth [and an acknowledgement that the reply may be shown to media outlet(s) or others] the root cause of the problem was the rounding up of a persons service.

Below is an example, it is not however my actual length of service;

5 years 8 months of service => rounded up to 6 years of service. Part of the redundancy payment only covers whole years of service.

I hope that is of interest to someone.
I have had it with you people, you are all a bunch of fickle mush heads!

Dazedandconfused many thanks for the update. Not sure it will help in any way but it does explain things. As I was much closer to what they rounded up to I actually think it seems more unfair them demanding it repaid.
