Re: Pay & Benefits , Covid-19 Related Matters
You will recall from our update to you on May 7th that we wrote to the Company regarding your Pay and Benefits claim ( Click Here ) and Covid-19 Absences and Vaccination Support (Click Here ) both letters can be accessed by clicking the forgoing links.
In response to our detailed correspondence regarding Covid-19 Absences and Vaccination Support the company has responded as follows:
“With regard to your letter of the 7ᵗʰ May we continue to support our colleagues’ health and
wellbeing and have maintained appropriate measures reflective of current conditions, including how we can best support colleagues who wish to avail of vaccine appointments. Any colleague who has a query in this regard should raise this with his/her line manager.“
With regard to the very important issue of your Pay & Benefits claim the Company issued an equally brief response;
“With regard to your letter of the 6ᵗʰ May we will be reverting to you with a response in due course once we have had the opportunity to fully assess the current and anticipated market conditions, and the needs of our colleagues.”

Given the distinct lack of a detailed response from the company regarding the above matters, which you the members, have identified as very important, we will now agree an appropriate response with your representatives at the upcoming Regional Tesco Shop Stewards’ meetings. The Regional Shop Stewards’ meetings are taking place, across the country on Tuesday 25th May, next @ 7pm
Ensure Your Store Is Represented At The Meeting
Given the important matters which will be discussed at the Regional Shop Stewards’ Meeting it is vitally important that your local store is represented at the meeting. Encourage your Shop Steward to attend and to voice your opinions. If you Store currently have no Shop Steward and you would like to represent your Store at Meeting, input your details below and your, local Mandate Office will be in touch.
If you have any comments or queries, don’t hesitate to contact you local office.
