In what can only be described as a foul move by supermarket giant Tesco, the company plans to practically destroy the wages of their longest staff members.
Tesco is about to ask staff who have been with the company for more than 20 years to sign up to new contracts in a series of new personnel angles to save the company significant cash on their wage bill.
Staff who’ve been working for Tesco for more than 20 years amount to around 7% of the Tesco workforce but the entire staff is said to be “up in arms over the fiasco”.
The new contracts will see staff being paid up to €3 less per hour than they are earning at present, that’s a significant decrease over the space of a month, up to €480.
Tesco say their current contracts that long-term employees work off were negotiated at a time when stores didn’t open on Sundays or late nights and thus are practically invalid.
The deduction will not affect those at management level who have worked for the company for a similar period of time, just floor staff.
