The union rep who I spoke to said same thing about investigation and he said bring it on ahh I dont know what to think to be honest my manager said he had a shock when he was told and would argue my case but I dont see that I have a case to answer

Stop fretting lad....admin is just a little dept, who's job it is to process applicants through the stages of recruitment. Unsure why they are saying YOU need investigating  ???

Also don't get where your manager is coming from here? Is he a line manager or store manager? Is he new?? He should know the buck would stop with the store...as THEY would be held responsible if any redundancy protocols were broken, no you!!! And remember these protocols are only put in place for returning to work for the same company...so they should be able to determine from their own employees work records, if it's in the correct timeframes :-X

Basic pay for last month was up to and including 02 May 2020 which was the end date for colleagues taking redundancy in my store, so if that's your end date your pay is correct.

I would have thought that you should get some pay,as the cut off date for 2nd may payslip would have been the 23rd April. So from the 24 April to 2nd May should be in this payslip, obviously as long as you worked between those dates.Anyone confirm this.

Probably because the members of the dept have small job syndrome, it'll be the closest any of them will get to a real office job and so they feel and act too big for their boots. Expecting everyone to respect their (lack of) authority.

And I dare say your manager has hot footed it to you to pass on the results as quickly as when he chose to needlessly worry you without double checking first :-X

You should now speak to your line manager with regard you recouping any induction hours as T/ L, as you can't legally be paid the time owing.

There is a link on the home page which shows the pay dates. top right hand side. It shows the cut-off dates.

Your basic pay, for contracted hours, is paid up to and including the Saturday after payday.
Your overtime, for hours other than your contracted ones, is paid up to and including Thursday of the week before payday.

Yes, but in a very different way. It's vacancies not being filled in certain roles rather than soft structure or redundancy. I don't think it's any particular role either but depends on store structure. Not 100% on that last bit though.

It does depend on store structure, however they are not telling you which positions are affected in which store which is also not very transparent as we are meant to be.

The person who has a job at risk is always the first person told. That is how it should be. This change means that role only removed if vacant so nobodies job is at risk. They won't tell you the potential jobs at risk as it comes back to the person affected being the first person to know and not at risk until it's vacant. It's only affecting current managers who may be getting bigger roles because of this.

Is this new??? When did it come out? As the informal structure process which came out aug 2019 states the opposite..that they will no longer wait for natural wastage but actively facilitate the change over the course of 6 months before escalating the matter higher if no resolution is found.

SD,s were speaking to SMS individually post annual review conference call.
If anything it will take place next year (structure change) can’t see it taking place due to this years circumstances around the pandemic.

The annual review is just that. It reviews the structure in the stores to see if any changes are needed, at management level.

The upcoming review, amongst other changes, will impact the bakery managers and the lead team structure in certain stores.

I thought there were going to be no lead team changes this year, due to the bakery already implemented. There was talk of combining lead roles last year, although I’m aware this is no longer happening.
