They’ve only just notified us of it the other day so I think it’s still subject to changes as people have flagged up problems in their shifts

Generally if you haven’t requested time off then you would be responsible for finding someone to cover your shift.

It depends on your contract but in general no, once the Rota has gone up it is too late to request.
Most places have a 6weeks in advance request for time off or holidays.
And especially around Christmas they probably have extra rules about requests.

Nope they haven’t even given me that I don’t even have an employee number yet and I’ve been working for them for almost a month now

Then I’d take that up with your line manager straight away tbh. They need to provide you with access to the information.

It is generally 6weeks in advance for requests. However most retail have rules about no time off over the Christmas holidays so it will probably come down to you finding someone who can cover your shift for you.

Almost certainly too late. it's as much your responsibility to find out what the leave rules are as it is the companies, and apart from the amount of leave, the rules on when you can take leave etc are not contractual. If you can't find a staff handbook then you need to ask. Seasonal temps are never going to get priority over permanent staff.

Hi
First of all you should had made it clear you couldn't work over the Xmas period.
Unfortunately I think threeportdrift made the point clear about temporary staff over permanent staff as temporary staff are there / employed to cover any permanent staff holiday periods.
You should had put this in writing / requesting this off when you first started and wait and see if you were granted it like.
I think that all shop / supermarkets staff has also got family commitments but majority has to unfortunately work over this period,

As a team leader with them I can relate to your matter but this will be my first Xmas period off with them in all my years I been working there.

A copy of the employee handbook will be online if you log into your tesco account or if you not yet did this then sign upto it but you'll usually need your employee pay number which you'll get on or before you get first pay. If not ask your manager on this matter.
