Supermarket giant Tesco to shed 4,500 staff

Out of a total workforce of 340,000, the UK's largest grocer has reported that, in order to run their business more sustainably, they will be looking to make around 4,500 members of staff redundant from their Tesco Metro stores. As part of a £1.5bn cost saving exercise to combat competition from the likes of ALDI and Lidl, Tesco also plan to reduce the opening hours of some Tesco Express stores during quieter trading periods.

If you find your working conditions are changing or are under threat of redundancy it is important you seek legal advice.
