Re: National Discussions
2nd September 2021
As you will be aware from last week’s update, you’re negotiating team held further discussions with the Tesco Senior Management on Tuesday last.
Tuesday’s session was quite a long session, however the meeting was productive in nature and significant progress was made on issues surrounding Family Leave, Pension and Sick Pay.
However it wasn’t possible to make sufficient progress on the very important issue of pay and in this regard, both your Union and the Company have jointly sought the intervention of the Workplace Relations Commission (WRC) to assist all parties in attempting to agree proposals on all the outstanding matters.
It should be noted that no formal agreement has been reached on any component part of the negotiations, as only the membership can determine such matters. In this regard, if proposals emanate from the (WRC), please be assured that they will of course be put before, you the members, for your consideration, by way of a Ballot.
As soon as we have any update, such a date for the WRC, we will advise you accordingly.
