DRIVERS from the Tesco Distribution Centre in Fenny Lock have been transferred to work for Eddie Stobart from now on.
In November, Tesco opened consultation with the workforce of around 150 to begin working for the store’s contractor of choice, with the majority of staff now donning the green and red uniforms.
According to union Usdaw, a total of 111 staff, made up largely of drivers, transferred to the Stobart Group on Sunday December 12. Twenty staff decided to transfer to other Tesco depots and a further 17 chose to transfer to Tesco’s warehouse operations at Fenny Lock.
A spokesman from Tesco said: “We are constantly reviewing our distribution operation to ensure it gives the best value to our stores.”
