For those who have been following the situation with DH and his removal from management training in Tesco due to childcare committments.....

DH did it!! HE BLOODY DID IT! They have signed him back onto it, apologised for being hasty and are looking for a store for his 3 week placement now!

Once he has completed his 3 week in another store he will be signed off as a Section Manager!!! Fully trained.... to tell Tesco to F/ck Off and shove their job... and go work for Asda. !
It's nice to be able to post a positive thread since all my troubled threads!

Thanks for the support and advice, but hopefully the matter is now closed! Stupid idiots, don't know why they thought they'd get away with it. DH said they were like jibbering idiots when they heard he'd filed a grievance! lol

Toothache, not posted before but have followed all the angst.... SOOOO pleased for you and dh, and well done for standing up to crappy Tesco bosses!!

Onwards and upwards now, eh?

Great news. Sounds like he did the right thing in questioning whether they have followed their own procedures correctly and being persistent .

Toothache Sat 28-May-05 20:43:26


There were lots of factors they hadn't considered..... such as the 4 month delay in starting his training (total mismanagement). They didn't think DH would question their decisions as he's normally quite nonconfrontational (at work!!!).

Thanks so much everyone.

Thought I'd drink my G&T out of a crystal glass this evening to celebrate!! So sad.

So do you and dh want to be known as "The Toothache Two" or "The Tesco Two"?

Toothache Sat 28-May-05 22:20:56

Coppertop - I'd prefer "The Tesco Warriors"!!

Brilliant news! Just shows that the little person can take on the mighty conglomerate and win.

Fantastic news Toothache!! I know it's been shit for both of you but I hope it's given you both a boost - if you didn't have the shit times then the good times wouldn't be so good

So true Bubblerock! I hated seeing him being humiliated like that. Bastards! (have I called them that before on MN? ).
