They need to ask to see their availability forms, to see how they've been given shifts and hours they haven't stated on them. Also any notes from any  meetings taken place, to see where any mention of these shifts have been put, where they've agreed to do them and where they've signed. Did they have a rep/witness at these meetings?
If no notes as informal, then no agreement was reached. Works both ways...think it's hanging on exactly what their availability forms stated, if the shifts/ days / hours are outside those availability Windows, they don't do them

I've heard that retaining Express Shift Leaders is a known problem at head office levels, can anyone elaborate on how bad aexpress shift leader turnover is?

Very bad, and with the current round of ca rhrp work underway in express it will only get worse as even more 1-1 working once that's done.

Surely the rhrp would be used to avoid paying Express Shift Leaders for their breaks? If 1 on 1 working is agreed that means that the shift leader has to be paid 9 hours, not 7.5?

I do wonder if they have any plans on how to resolve the retainment issues for the role, tbf I can see why, the role is more a duty manager role than a leader role and the compensation for what they do is worse than all competitors. I would have thought the pay review would make it more appealing but they only got a 57p increase where as cas got a 58p increase.

I do wonder if they actually know what they're doing.

Ah I think I'm getting what you mean by flexing them up...no they can't give them more shifts, it's overtime, not compulsory. If they don't have those shifts on their new AGREED contracts, then they can't be told they have to work them. It's either regular OFFERED overtime, or a vacancy to be filled.

I was wondering if anyone could help me? Sorry, I'm not sure how to create my own post so I am posting on this one.

I have worked part-time here at Tesco for two years.
Over the past 12 months I have had about two meetings regarding unnecessary use of my phone during my shifts (we are allowed our phone on the shop floor due to having Inform where we can look at products), and last week I apparently was caught on my phone numerous times throughout the shift, and last I received a letter saying that I'm invited to an investigation meeting with my manager and with another manager as the note taker due to the phone issue. I am just wondering as to whether I will be fired at the meeting, seen as my manager has spoken to me numerous times about the issue.
(by the way I know I am completely in the wrong and it is so stupid of me to use my phone whilst at work).

Due to the type of business that Tesco is (one that operates on a model of extremely high staff turnover and attrition), they have a very, very lenient disciplinary structure that they must follow before you get fired. After 3 lets's talks on the same issue, investigations occur the store manager then issues a verbal warning if you were found to be in the wrong, if you get caught again it goes up to written warning and then after that you get dismissed.

At the moment however, they may have to be even more lenient on disciplinaries, the economy at the moment is an employees market meaning they'll struggle to recruit quality candidates if any due to other retailers hiring at better rates and T&C's or anything non-retail.

Totally wrong, it does not need any lets talks or the store manager to give a warning, it can go straight to final or even sacked if serious enough.

Nope, it's right, being on the phone isn't gross misconduct, that's the only time when it goes to final written/dismissal without prior steps.

Due to the 6 month informal process which has been talked about already, it might mean there is no rush yet to have that conversation? 

Even though you would think with the chat on VLH plus the usual chit chat between stores, that Food Managers would be pushing to start the process!

What was your response to that conversation Mildew?

Are you ok with what has been offered in terms of looking for another role in local area, or have you voiced any concerns?

Be interesting to hear what other managers are saying!

I'm absolutely not ok with what is on offer and have given numerous questions that I want answers to before I move on to my own personal plan of action.
