 Seems that its only store staff that are not working distribution staff are working , and pay is normal as in bank holiday pay for those that would have worked that day , And yes Tesco will be even more busy with Marks and asda closed ...

To be fair, the staff at head office, up to and including the board, will be working just as hard as Stores, depot etc over the Christmas period...

Jesus, I couldn't even type that with a straight face! :D ;D

Use the Notion of "Advanced Notice" in terms and conditions" - Like in extreme circumstance they can ask flexi's or people to work within 24 hours but it's not expected, the norm for Availability is 7 days / 4 weeks in advance, so if you can't do it, you just give them the 7 days notice and refer back to that...You can change your availability weeks in advance, so since there's still time before christmas go grab an availability form if need be (they can't deny you one), fill it in and give it them.  :D

You'll have the protection of equal rights if others have been able to cancel any shifts and since overtime isn't something that's actually required by a permanent colleague, they can't force you to do it either and if you were a flexi you'd still be able to change it as previously said based on the 7 day notice rule, if its less than 7 days then they would then want reasons why / give one of the warnings, but other-than that nothing they can do.  ;D

Have you booked the Monday off as a days holiday .
It's well documented that all holidays and bank holidays need to be booked off
Preferably by end if July at latest .
Also its not worth checking with calendars and Google, mondays are always
Highlighted as Bank Holidays but its not a legally binding.
All companies that dont operate mon to fri can choose if it's the sat/sun or the monday
Whatever is most appropriate.

So after much to-ing fro-ing with the checkout manager, my son filled in his availability sheet with the hours he could do over the festive period - 3/4 long shifts per week whilst he’s home and they basically ignored his availability and sent it back with ridiculous shifts which bear no resemblance to the window he gave them. If he had any prior commitments, these shifts walk all over them. He messaged the line manager back last Thursday and they haven’t even bothered to reply. His mental health hasn’t been great this term so he’s told them to shove it and he’ll work from tomorrow to his last contracted shift this Saturday then he’s walking. I’m so cross with Tesco, but he’s quite relieved that he’s made the decision now as apparently it has become a pretty toxic place to work now.

If it has the potential to effect his mental health, he's done the right thing in walking away. No job is worth that, especially one in Tesco.

All stores have been issued with a high level of overtime this year. The aim is to minimise congestion. Generally speaking at checkouts you go to team support first to sort out overtime. There should always be team support available to speak to and quickly resolved.

As most retailers are a 24 hour business, we are allowed to have the Saturday as a bank holiday.  Was confirmed months ago. The Mondays 28th and 4th haven't been bank holidays this year and never  were going to be for store staff.

I believe as most head office colleagues are mon to fri, Saturday is not a bank holiday for them.

I believe next year the Bank holidays will be on Saturday and Monday.  Sundays (26th and 2nd) will be optional days off to take as hols, unpaid, work time back etc.

Related to this.

What will the hourly rate be on boxing day? is it time and a quarter plus the 10% winter bonus?

Im stuck on old disability benefits due to my health and can only earn so much in a week until they finally move me to UC (assessments halted due to covid)

Long time colleague working nights, my nights off land on the Christmas and New years Bank Holidays.  Am I not still entitled to those days off at a later date?

I heard Tesco was paying another 10% coronavirus related payment for the current period, if so, it will be time and a quarter of the base rate and 10% of the base rate, premiums don't compound.
