It's Tesco, they'll have a "process" that has to be followed, but, as usual it won't be followed correctly, you'll have the Area Managers giving the pretense of policy is law, that process must be followed without question, but behind closed doors they will imply the expectation of doing a Jack the Lad job under the delusion that by saving the company money they will curry favour with the directors and be in line for a promotion, they want the affected colleagues to disappear without paying out, they will of course say otherwise publically.

 8-) I hope you are proved right, and by standing your ground, showing them you won't be brow beaten. If they eventually offer redundancy to those managers who refused to move, how will they deal with the backlash from the other managers who took another role.

My understanding from conversations with my Store Manager is those that have move are doing so willingly therefore no comeback in relation to your comments

There will be no offer of redundancy. If after 6 months you have not accepted another role you have been offered you will be dismissed from the company.

They can only dismiss you if you have not taken a job that was selected for you. If jobs have come up and you have applied and not been successful you have shown that you have tried.  If jobs have not come up you have not been able to find yourself another job.  I think you only need to show you have tried.  Opportunities are not the same in all areas so it can't be same for everyone.

Surely you cannot be dismissed by the company, if your being given extra responsibility and more workload.
Surely there is a case for a terms and conditions arguement, and that your role is being change to take on stock and admin role.

The government has strict laws on what constitutes a redundancy situation, for FSM's being redeployed it's acceptable as long as there's no loss of earnings, the work location is of similar distance to your current location, the job you're being redeployed to is within your capabilities (they should train you for the role regardless) and it's reasonable, if there is anything you find unreasonable about it in any way, you have to prove why it is.

Made to take a vacancy in an informal way? Good luck with that. Nothing can be made to happen informaly.  If they try to push people into vacancies they would have to make it formal, and that changes the situation...

Glad to see people are still on here. Think this will rumble on for awhile. All of it stinks to be honest. How many of us would not take redundancy if offered ?
Think the combining of job roles is sneaky without consultation but let's see. How many people have had formal note written meetings ? Probably is all informal at the moment but will save them a fortune if natural moves do occur before its live officially. However I've heard elsewhere it should be done by now. Who knows ?

No, there were two packs given out at the announcement of the change. One specifically around moving managers around the business and the other was about briefing the change to the stakeholders ie food managers and stock and admin managers.

I feel that this will have a backlash, when all the managers they have manipulated into taking alternate roles, realise the ones who stuck it out are offered redundancy.

You are probably right but at that point there will be nothing they can do. Strikes me this is a way of not losing so many managers in one go.

When are they replacing Team Managers with Shift Leaders in all stores?

That is the idea, but Tesco are looking for the cheapest way to do it.

How many out there are hanging out for something better.
I have turned down other positions as I feel they are not suitable. Our stock admin manager has moved sideways. I refused this role as when I previously did it I ended up off for months with stress.The SM has divided up the various stock admin responsibilities to other team managers, but not me.
Can't wait to see what January brings ....

Most are probably holding out for redundancy, as there is not much confidence that there won't be further restructures.
