Welcome to the community, first off :)
I do agree with you in some respects - there IS a bullying problem in the company. In one recent case, a colleague had a disiplinary hering, and part of the evidence that was given against him was a statement by another colleague. This colleague was bullied into giving the statement. The colleague that was being investigated only did what he was entitled to, and does only that (it seems to annoy the management if people do what the rules etc say), and upon coming out of the hearing, his line manager was quoted as saying "thats it, we've got the c*nt now"
As for USDAW, i've not had too much of a problem with them - our store rep is a decent bloke, and he really does care about the welfare of the workers. He's also a local politician too, so he knows his stuff.
do you know why on talkback a number is penciled on the top ,anybody who has derogatory remarks about management are BLACKLISTED for the treatment of doing opposite of what they say.
I never knew that - but surely though there's no way to know whom filled out the particular form, as there's no other way, apart from either handwriting recognition, or working it out from age/department etc. I might be wrong.
Basically, i'm completely fed up with my branch - we've got a manager who won't talk to you, if he doesnt like the look of you, and we have 2 line managers, and they both have no respect, and both don't do ANY work - most days't ehy'll help only the young, pretty female workers. One will only work with his girlfriend, and will spend up to an hour a night in the office, chatting to his gf. It's totally unnaceptable.
Firstly, please delete the names from this post. If you don't do that, I'll have to delete the entire post: the LiveJournal Abuse team can be very picky about such things, and I don't want this community shut down.
I didn't notice any numbers marked on our last talkback forms, and we weren't handed them in any specific order, so I don't think they were tracking us that way; at least in our store. I do know that some of the people in our store filled in fake demographics, claiming to be 18 year old Pakistani women, instead of 50 year old white British men. That said, we sealed our forms in an envelope, and they're supposed to be sent straight off to an external company. If you handed your forms back in without an envelope, I'd be very suspicious.

Firstly USDAW are not and never have been 'in the pocket' of sainsburys or any other company. The union is only as strong as its members and if you get organized at store level then you have your selves to blame. The union will offer all the support you want but you do have to be active and ask not come on boards like this and vent your illiterate anger. I've be a member of USDAW for 26 years and been also been a steward and committee member in that time because I wanted a say in how I was treated so stop whinging and get active!

Well where would i start.. umm i been working for sainsbury more than 6 years.... during this time i have made some great friends for life...
sainsbury doesn't belive in protecting it employee ,, more like it a modern day slavery trade where one get salary instead of a wip....
and in the name of a job and salary people are used like slaves.
working condition are very bad.. people don't get to stay their brakes properly...
and are made to stay more than their designated hours using intimidation...
i have worked for 2 different stores fortess road local and golders green local....
2 of the worst managers i have ever worked Akin and Yusuf noor....of golders green..i surly wish them well...
Akin one of the diabolical...nastiest piece of work u ever come across.. dismissing people without proper cause or investigations...
intimidation and bulling...changing peoples contracts with out permissible.... reasons...or 3 months waiting time
favoritism...and yusuf noor one of the laziest managers ever worked for,,,,,
guy can talk off basically from all part including his mouth....
lazy as shit... doesn't do anything but know to bully and intimidate people to get work done...
and the hr managers.. they bunch of useless people they dont do anything to protect employees.. and always take sides of the manager...
such a hr manager is emma clark.....
i once had an issue where akin sends me for training and refuse to pay me...and when i confronted him..he said its for your personal development...
and when i took him to hr... all wht happened was i got transferred to golders green
sainsbury employs such criminals.. and to top of them all these hr managers are more concern of their bonus and well fair..make people work less hours and get more work of them.. and cut labor hours so they can get their big bonus....
one good thing came of this.. was i realized it not a place i wanna work....
so i left.....
Sainsbury though their adverts have British people but u goto most sainsbury it students and immigrants working...
and most of them worry to lose their jobs since unlike the local populations they don't have any benefits or protection.. so their survival depends on their jobs.....
so retails such as sainsbury exploit workers.. given if such a local population was treated unfairly they would stay home on benefit and sue sainsbury ass off....
but i have seen some really good managers at the same time.. and hard working people.. who has made the company for wht it is...
such as special shout for James....wallace... david....and JT
Freed From Slavery And in a brighter Place...
