Tesco distributes redundancies...

Throughout the country on September 21st, Tesco announced they wanted hundreds of redundancies in their distribution depots. This, at a time when they are still employing Slovakian and Polish agency workers brought in from abroad and being made to stay, several in one house.

In one depot in Magor South Wales, There hasn't been a British person employed for a while; instead they prefer to take on agency because they are cheaper and subsequently Tesco do not have to pay contributions to the government. They have very few rights unlike the regular staff and have been called into work at an hours notice. They are told to work 12 hours instead of 8, but only told when they arrive in the warehouse.

After the 'simplification' programme which is what they are calling these redundancies, the terms and conditions are to be changed for all staff who remain. They have changed the title of a job and dropped the hourly rate but the job is identical to before and the same people doing it.

It was announced earlier that the distribution centres in the UK must make a saving of £60 Million. It is difficult to force more people into the shops so they are trying to get the savings from the staff. Loyal staff who put Tesco into the No. 1 position.

Thanks for this post Eve, you are publicising great wrongdoing on Tesco's part and I should hopw from here others will read it and it will be spread mainstream. It is wrong for them to be removing British workers in already depressed areas like parts of Wales where i understand Tesco got subsidies to locate in the first place. Please forward this post to as many news outlets as you can think of. I've sent it to a few this afternoon. Regards, Tesco-Complaint.

this istance is not unique indeed at a site in crick run by exel on behalf of tesco it has no british employees just poles and slovaks .....all signs in the warehouse are in polish...polish supervisors..etc so much for every little helps..it does in this case regarding low wages and employees who are grateful for the minimum wage long working hoursand little holidays.. these jobs were never advertised so much for the british worker ..........

so the truth is that the 600,000 poles that came over when new labour thought there would be 13,000 really are taking jobs away from brits because these tesco jobs are jobs brits would do and were doing. new labour or no labour?
