Thousands of Tesco jobs are at risk after the supermarket announced plans to cut back on night shifts and trading hours at its UK stores.

The supermarket said the move was part of "further improvements" to customer service.

Around 3,000 staff will be affected by the changes, which will see restocking shifts at 69 of its stores change from overnight to daytime hours, and trading hours at eight of its 24-hour stores cut back to 6am to midnight.

It will also merge different services desks, "so that customers can get everything they need in one place".

A consultation will be launched over the coming weeks, and the supermarket expects the majority of staff will stay on with Tesco in some capacity.

The changes are expected to come into force by this summer.

Tesco’s UK chief executive Matt Davies said: “We’re committed to improving the way we serve our customers and this week have discussed making further changes in a number of UK stores with our colleagues.
“These changes will help us run these stores more simply and deliver the best possible service for customers.

“We appreciate these changes will impact the roles of some of our colleagues and we will work with them to ensure they are fully supported throughout this period.”

The eight 24-hour stores that will see opening times reduced include the Edgware Road Metro, Galashiels Extra, Holyhead Extra, Ilkeston Extra, Kilmarnock Extra, Falkirk Grahams Road, as well as sites in Folkestone and Worksop.

Surely they will just move the night fillers to the day time? Someone has still got to put the stock out. I would say this is better for the staff as I've done night shifts and it messes with your life. We have become a 24hrs 7 day a week country, we never had it years back and still survived. Just had to wait til the next day to buy something.

Unfortunately it won't work out like that. There will only be a few twilight fillers as there's plenty of people on each department to fill during the day,well that's the way they look at it.

Yeah but the people losing nightshifts will lose a lot of shift allowance. Which they may be reliant on to pay the bills.

I do agree that week need to scale back from the 24/7 culture that has crept in for non essential jobs.

I would not be surprised with the new staff over the last few years the night workers just get basic pay knowing Tesco.

Prob even forced older staff onto basic pay for working nights with a small lump sum for doing it.

this has already been rolled out across Tesco, staff have been moved departments from nightshift to day shift, on more often than not reduced hours. very few night shift jobs remain. I used to work in Tesco, they started this before i left several months ago, the wife works there still.

Nights fit in for a lot of people and they prefer it,also dont forget,you get a night shift premium which will be lost on days.
They are doing this also at sainsburys where i work.

"But Mr Bank, it's good for me - someone on HUKDs told me so - because it's a **** hole; what do you mean, that doesn't pay my mortgage?"

Great so when I'm doing my shopping there will be shelf stackers all over the damned place as well as the numerous on line order pickers. The place will be like a bloody assault course.(_;)

My local 24 hour Tesco (Edinburgh Corstorphine) is fantastic in the wee small hours - a reasonable amount of shoppers but lots of staff, and they are ever so helpful. Thankfully that store isn't on the list and I hope it won't be as it's a great asset to be able to shop at that time.

If its anything like Asda (my nearest is a 24 hour one) the shop will be clogged up with stock pallet trolly things, hardly any staff around, empty shelves for days, few checkout staff. Just a case of buy what you can use a self-service til and then go elsewhere if you want the basic things you expect to be vigorously restocked like bread.

I mainly use Morrisons its further away and less then half the size of asda yet they have staff and keep shelves stocked....for now.
