Over 1,500 Tesco workers may lose their jobs – here’s why

Over 1,500 jobs at Tesco are at risk as the supermarket giant is ending its overnight restocking at some stores, while also converting some petrol sites to pay-at-pump during the night.

Tesco boss Jason Tarry said the move would help it to run the business as “simply and efficiently as possible”.

“We operate in a highly competitive and fast-paced market, and our customers are shopping differently, especially since the start of the pandemic,” said Mr Tarry.

“We are always looking at how we can run our business as simply and efficiently as possible, so that we can reinvest in the things that matter most to customers.”

The BBC reported that overnight restocking will switch to the daytime in 36 big stores and 49 convenience stores. The chain also plans to convert petrol stations in 36 stores to pay-at-pump only during overnight hours.
