A supermarket with two stores in Helensburgh has announced changes which could put more than 2,000 jobs at risk across the UK.

Tesco, which has shops on Sinclair Street and East Clyde Street, has notified retail trade union Usdaw regarding its plans to close its remaining in-store counter services, as well as the restructuring of store management roles and some head office functions.

In-store managerial restructures would see the removal of 1,750 lead and team managers, however 1,800 shift leader roles would be introduced.

Tesco is also proposing some localised changes across the business, including pharmacy closures, post office restructures, and removal of night shifts – which could lead to redundancies.

Within its head office, the supermarket is proposing changes to a number of functions and the removal of supplicated roles, which could see 120 jobs put at risk.

Daniel Adams, Usdaw national officer, said: “Tesco has informed us that they are looking to undertake restructures across the business.

“Clearly there is no good time to receive news like this, but it is especially difficult in the midst of a cost of living crisis and will be devastating for those who may be affected.

“Usdaw will be entering into collective consultation with Tesco immediately to interrogate these proposals.

“We will be doing all we can to support members throughout the process with a view to protecting jobs and, where this is not possible, securing the best possible deal for those affected.”

Tesco UK and ROI chief executive officer, Jason Tarry, said: “These are difficult decisions to make, but they are necessary to ensure we remain focused on delivering value for our customers wherever we can, as well as ensuring our store offer reflects what our customers value the most.

“Our priority is to support those colleagues impacted and help find alternative roles within our business from the vacancies and newly created roles we have available.”
