Court decision blocks Tesco’s fire and rehire strategy

Quote
A Court of Session decision will stop the strategy adopted by supermarket Tesco n firing and rehiring workers, according to the retail workers union Usdaw.

The judgement applies to the distribution centre at Livingston and places an immediate stop on the company forcing some of the staff there to sign a new contract. This might have affected staff by reducing their wage packet by anything between £4,000 and £19,000 a year. The employer demanded that workers signed a new contract by today Saturday, and this is no longer lawful.

“Retained pay was offered a number of years ago as an incentive to retain colleagues,” Tesco said.

If my memory is correct it was offered to resolve a problem created by the company..

Quote
“Today we have over 16,000 colleagues working in distribution, the vast majority of whom do not receive this top-up, so we have taken the decision to phase it out.


Unilaterally renege on a signed agreement.

“We made a fair offer to those colleagues affected, and many of our colleagues have chosen to accept this. This decision does not affect the voluntary process.”

On threat of dismissal  :o 'do this or your sacked'  :thumbdown: 'voluntary' >:(
