Tesco confirmed today that a redundancy has been accepted at one of its Naas stores.
A staff member at one of the Naas stores accepting a voluntary redundancy packages comes in the same week that voluntary redundancy offers were made to up to 10 night-time Tesco staff in the Newbridge and Celbridge stores.
Today a Tesco spokesperson said: "I can confirm that one security colleague in Naas has taken voluntary severance."
Staff currently working night time hours in Tesco stores throughout Co Kildare this week have been given the option of working day time hours or take voluntary redundancy.
10 staff could potentially lose their jobs, if they do not accept day time hours.
A Tesco spokesperson said: "A small proportion of our staff, less than 10 colleagues in Kildare (between our Celbridge and Newbridge stores) who currently work night shifts are being offered more family-friendly, day-time working hours. This means we'll be able to provide better customer service during opening hours. For those colleagues who chose not to move to days and take up the option of working day time shifts we are making available a voluntary redundancy package. However we anticipate that the majority will transfer to day shifts as we have jobs for everyone affected."
Tesco has still not been able to confirm how many voluntary redundancies have been offered nationwide.
