Tesco Lotus “We haven’t sacked 30-50% of our staff”

Matichon Online has posted a statement from Tesco Lotus following a series of viral posts claiming Tesco Lotus is laying off staff and closing stores. A similar story was posted on The Thaiger (below).

The statement from Tesco Lotus says that the claims that “30%-50% of staffers have been laid off and 43 branches have been closed” are not true.

“These rumours are old news for Tesco Lotus in the United Kingdom, back in in 2015, which appear to have been shared but are different from the facts here in Thailand.

“Not long ago we improved our business plans in order to provide better customer service. Due to these changes, we had to cancel some positions in order to suit our new business structures. We tried to find the best solutions for our staff who have been affected by these changes.
