Tesco restructure could put around 1,600 jobs at risk and is devastating news for those affected says Usdaw

Date: 01 February 2022 Retail trade union Usdaw will now enter into consultation talks with Tesco after the company announced a restructure of their night shift operations. This follows the closure of just over half their in-store counter services and the Jack’s store format announced yesterday, which combined could put around 1,600 jobs at risk across the business.
Daniel Adams – Usdaw National Officer says: “Tesco has informed us that they are looking to undertake a number of restructures across the business that could put around 1,600 jobs at risk. Clearly this will be incredibly unsettling for those who may be affected.
 
“We should not forget the role that key workers have played throughout the Coronavirus pandemic and to receive this news is devastating.
 
“Usdaw will do all we can to support members throughout the process and we will fully engage in consultation with the business with a view to protecting jobs and, where this is not possible, securing the best possible deal for those affected.”
