Employment

TESCO's cleaning contractor TC Contractors has, under the bogus guise of 'redundancies' imposed savage cuts in the terms and conditions of its cleaners. It has in effect torn up these workers contracts and is pressuring them to sign blank-cheque contracts. Contrary to TC's redundancy claims, not only has the workload not changed but new tasks have been added. Cleaners find the workload impossible and the "new practices" a threat to both food hygiene and health and safety.In Derry, cleaners at 3 stores have signalled their oppostion to these cuts and have, through their union Unite, engaged management in a grievance procedure to be heard on 6 and 7 October. We are calling for community-wide support to make TESCO reverse these savage cuts and the insane practices they have resulted in.

    i a supervisor and think is a breach of my contract to exept me to work public holidays for normal time.and also a disgrace that we have to clean windows and trolleys corrals in freezing weather and snow.

    I TOTALLY AGREE WITH THE COMMENTS THAT HAVE BEEN POSTED, TCC CANNOT BE ALLOWED TO TRAMPLE ON OUR RIGHTS, IF EVERYONE STICKS TOGETHER, SOMETHING MUST BE DONE. I AM FINDING IT EXTREMELY HARD GOING TO GET EVERYTHING TESCO WANT DONE WITH THE HOURS AND THE BUDGET I HAVE BEEN GIVEN,.

    SORRY TO BE NEGATIVE,BUT YOU DON’T STAND A CHANCE. THEY TOOK OVER SAINSBURYS STORES IN KENT FROM INTERSERVE AND GOT RID OF NEARLY EVERY INSTORE MANAGER AND AREA MANAGERS ONE WAY OR ANOTHER !!! MY BUDGET WAS CUT FROM 212 HOURS TO 156 HOURS. I TOLD THEM IT COULDN’T BE DONE, THEIR ATTITUDE WAS IT CAN BE DONE AND IT WILL BE DONE ONE WAY OR ANOTHER!!! I HAD UP TO TWO YEARS AGO CLEANED SAINSBURYS STORES AS AN INSTORE MANAGER FOR 38 YEARS AND ALWAYS ENJOYED MY JOB UNTIL T.C. TOOK OVER. I ENDED UP TAKING A YEAR OFF WITH STRESS CAUSED BY THE CONSTANT PRESSURE I WAS PUT UNDER AND THEN I HAD NO ALTERNATIVE BUT TO LEAVE A JOB THAT I ENJOYED. OBVIOUSLY I NEVER HAD ANY SUPPORT FROM SAINSBURYS BECAUSE ALL THEY ARE INTERESTED IN IS GETTING THE CLEANING DONE AS CHEAPLY AS POSSIBLE. I HAVN’T WORKED SINCE I LEFT. YES I AM STILL BITTER I THOUGHT THAT LOYALTY COUNTED FOR SOMETHING BUT OBVIOUSLY IT DOESN’T WITH T.C CLEANING CONTRACTORS. THE VERY BEST OF LUCK, YOU WILL NEED IT BECAUSE THERE IS ALWAYS AN EAST EUROPEAN WITH NO EXPERIENCE TO JUMP IN TO YOUR SHOES AT A LOWER RATE OF PAY.
