    I’m currently A night manager with tesco. Tesco have recently decided to cut the night shift from most of their stores. While general staff had 4 choices ( contract buy out, redundancy, career break or move to a store keeping a night shift) I have been told as a manager I’m not intitled to these options. I can apply for redundancy or go on to days. If I go to days my salary will be cut by 25 percent with no compensation. My contract has a set salary at the moment but tesco is saying they can change my contract and break it if they want cause I’m a manager. I don’t think this is the case and would like to meet some one to look at my contract. They are pressuring me in to commiting to a decision soon. they say if I apply for reduncy I might not be successful and have to go on to days with the pay cut. I was hopping to meet some one over the next few days if possable. Thanks
