Hi I work at T3sco’s and I earn £8.91 but apparently it’s supposed to be £9.55 and every other colleague of mine earns £9.55 or more, should I bring this up with my manager? My colleague said that they’re underpaying me heavily so I’m quite concerned considering I do a lot of overtime for them.

What does your contract say your rate of pay is?

It says 8.91 but every other worker has had a pay rise and I haven’t even known about this so those who were paid 8.91 before are now being paid 9.55

Then talk to your manager to see why you haven’t been given a pay rise.
You’re not technically being underpaid.
It may be that a certain age group is higher, or a certain length of service etc.

If your contract specifies £8.91 as your rate of pay and you are being paid this amount, there is nothing to talk about.
What your coworkers are earning, their job performances and the content of their contracts are irrelevant to your employment life.

Just tell your manager your working hard and would value a pay rise and ask how you go about getting one. You could also speak to your union rep and see what they know about pay scales and if there are any collective bargaining arrangements in place

Hi

Can I ask you this - are you on a temporary contract when you started at tesco ....!!!

Because if you are currently a temporary contract worker then you'll be on £8.91p for your first 12 weeks of contract and then if your contract extended you'll then be paid the current rate of £9.30p per hour untill October when it rises to new rate of £9.55p per hour.

So therefore if you either on temporary contract or new permanent staff then this will be the case of you earning £8.91p per hour till you complete your 12 weeks probation period,

So you not being underpaid at all ok,after this period then if you kept on and it's not increased then go and talk to manager or union rep on this matter,
Wait till you completed your probation period first before speaking to manager.
Best I can advise you on with this ok.

By way overtime is optional so you can take what ever available and paid current rate per hour at time and quarter.

A team leader & occasionally stand in supervisor with tesco.
