No the payday voucher books went in exchange for the 15 percent discount after payday, the Christmas vouchers are a totally separate thing.
Do not let anyone tell you there is not a decent job and life beyond Tesco.

Hmmm....I'm glad Penguin confirmed my thinking that the Christmas vouchers were a completely separate thing.

Then again, Jason Tarry's email has just confirmed that there will be no Christmas vouchers!!

But as dairyfresh has confirmed, we're getting a 10% bonus for hours worked from 13 Dec - 9 Jan, getting 20% discount for a week (Tues 15 - Mon 21 Dec) and they're changing when the regular 15% runs from.....

Hard to know whether this is an improvement on the Christmas Vouchers.....


which were worth at least £20 (or was it £18 when they changed the discount)
I was looking forward to the discount on the Bayliss & Harding Gift sets (wouldn't buy them at normal price!!!)

Ok, so we're getting a 10% bonus on our hours for 4 weeks. Not to be sniffed at ......but I'm guessing it's not going to be a quiet one!!
the 20% discount is really only an uplift on the "normal 15%" we get after payday - so it's basically an extra 5% and runs for a few days more.
The other change is just semantics - yes a lot of people complained that the discount should run from payday - so from that point of view, it's helpful - but nothing "extra"

Unfortunately, the bottom line, whether we like it or not, is that many people would be grateful to have a job - so moaning about no Christmas vouchers is the least of our worries.

At least we have a new CEO that has come from a retail environment so that's why there's a 10% bounus over Christmas as its busy busy busy.

You should have invested in them as well then , I mean some of us got them when they was over £3 so the divi does not cover the loss  does it ? and you seem to forget that most of the divi goes to pension funds as well as those that no longer work and have lost out over the last few years ,
What's that saying ,,, You got to be in it to win it ,,, but then you could be in it and lose what you put into it ,,,,,,,,,

I agree , I would think that those on the lower end of the pay scale will be able to get it tax free , and for  all of us to  spend it on what we  want ,, Aldi and so on which the vouchers did not allow us to do  making us spend it in store ,,

For the rest of you it should work out at about £7 per £100 over 4 weeks ,and the 20% for one week as well as looking forwards to the 15% each pay day going forwards ,

I think it was a pain carrying around the vouchers ,losing them , and in some cases having to chase around the Managers when they did not give them to us ,,

Also is it not a great way to make sure every one does the Hours during these time , cuts down on sick ,, well you all don't think they are just thinking of you do you ? :D

Is this a 10% Christmas bonus or is this bonus once again linked to "working during lockdown - ok technically Dec isn't supposed to be lockdown - but you understand the gist"?

I'm not sure we'll get a 10% bonus every Christmas ......I still think this is somewhat connected with Covid.

I think its all linked part to do with the Virus part to do with them removing the Coupons , I dont think it has to anything to do with the new CEO since they would have decided to get rid of the Coupons long time ago , as to will you get it every year  I would think it would be a good idea if they did since part of the problem around this time of year is staff going sick or taking Holidays , after all some will rethink about booking holidays/sick since it will be paid only for those that work the hours ,,

i think your right  it is connected with covid and the extra burden on the work because of it , i was suprized when i read somewhere that next year (2021) they are contining with the 15% discount after payday (although changing from M-Th to F-mon) i was under the impresion this was a given the reason given to replace the chrismas vouchers.

They can’t even get the self scans to take 10% staff discount off a £3 meal deal in my store at the moment.

Not really a benefit question but does any one know if occupational health can provide CBT counselling for anxiety?

You can self refer on the nhs for cbt but there maybe a wait. There's definitely stuff online though.

Not sure if this counts as STAFF BENEFITS related, but i don't know how to start a thread so have come to post it in this thread as its the closest subject matter to my question.

I was wondering if anyone was worried about losing money on their Tesco Shares this month with the share consolidation of every 19 shares being reduced to 15 per shareholder?

I know they are giving all shareholders 50p per share to compensate the loss of shares but i can't help feeling i will lose some money here.

I'm not really experienced in share trading though so i'd appreciate anyone's feedback if they know better and understand fully what will happen.
