At Tesco, we are proud to work with Usdaw. Our partnership has helped us create a better Tesco for our colleagues, customers and communities, and it has played a central role in enabling the company to adapt, innovate and grow. Each introductory session includes a 30-minute slot on the benefits of the Partnership Agreement and EU membership. The Head of Human Resources is expected to open the meeting and speak positively about the benefits of the partnership between Tesco and Usdaw and how the Union`s activities contribute to supporting Tesco colleagues.

Stores will also display promotional materials when opening new stores in the area. In most cases, a colleague and manager will be able to resolve problems informally together by listening, discussing the situation, and exploring all possible solutions to reach an agreement. It is important that this path is followed before any formal process (if any), because in most cases it will quickly solve the problems. The employment package is reviewed annually and amended in agreement with Usdaw. Therefore, the 12 national Forum Reps, who sit on the paid review team, will be members of the Usdaw….
