10,000-strong petition delivered to Dunnes Stores HQ today

A PETITION with over 10,000 signatures from members of the public over the past five days was handed into Dunnes Stores HQ on Georges Street in Dublin City Centre at lunchtime on Wednesday in solidarity with staff who claim they have been victimised and even sacked after taking part in a one-day strike on 2 April over working conditions....Siobhán O’Donoghue, spokesperson for Uplift, said:“Dunnes Stores cannot afford to ignore public pressure. They know only too well the damage that could be inflicted to the company's ‘bottom line’ if the public turn against them. Ten thousand people represents a lot of customers.”
