Tesco could cut up to 15,000 jobs

Tesco could cut up to 15,000 jobs as it reviews ways to cut costs across its business, according to reports.

The Mail on Sunday has indicated that the supermarket is considering whether to overhaul its in-store bakeries and use frozen dough instead of fresh dough, and that other fresh food counters could be in the firing line.

In addition, the newspaper said Tesco could close some of its staff canteens and replace them with vending machines.

Tesco declined to discuss its plans with The Mail on Sunday but a company spokesperson said in a statement: “We are always looking at ways to run our business more simply and efficiently. Whenver we make changes in our business, colleagues are always the first to know.”

Shopworkers union Usdaw has expressed concern about the reports.

Pauline Foulkes, Usdaw national officer, said: “Usdaw is seeking an urgent meeting with the company to clarify the situation, to examine the details of what changes they are proposing and what this means for staff. Our priority will be to press Tesco to confirm the details of their proposed changes to stop any further speculation.”
