Usdaw and Tesco sign a new and updated recognition and collective bargaining agreement

Date: 21 July 2022 Usdaw General Secretary Paddy Lillis and Tesco Chief People Officer Emma Taylor have this week signed a renewed and improved partnership agreement, which is the largest private sector collective bargaining agreement in the UK and one of the largest in Europe.
It not only deepens the long standing relationship between Usdaw and Tesco, it provides for wider levels of consultation on all aspects of the employment relationship, as well as giving additional facilities for Union Reps to carry out their roles across Tesco retail.
Daniel Adams – Usdaw National Officer says: “The new agreement is the result of months of discussions and the hard work of all of the Usdaw reps that were involved. This agreement demonstrates the value of employers working positively with trade unions and ensures that the working relationship between Tesco and Usdaw remains fit for the future.
“This agreement recognises the tireless work of our reps up and down the country supporting members and the work they do to make Tesco a better place to work for employees and continues the Company’s commitment in recognising their contribution and the invaluable role that they play. This is a model of progressive and constructive industrial relations within the private sector and should be recognised as such.”
