Retribution for Dunnes Stores strike is despicable, says Mandate Trade Union

Mandate Trade Union has...condemned Dunnes Stores for targeting staff who participated in the nationwide strike last Thursday, 2nd April. The union has received reports from members all over the country who have experienced..[d]ismissals[,] [c]uts to hours[,] [c]hanges in roles[,] [c]hanges in shift patterns...Gerry Light, Mandate Assistant General Secretary said: “As a very last resort, and with no other option available to them, our members in Dunnes Stores took legitimate and reasonable industrial action. “All they want is for their company to meaningfully engage with them through their union, with the objective of creating decent working conditions. Now, their employer is blatantly targeting people with the hope of intimidating their own loyal staff and turning them away from any future trade union activities,” said Mr Light.
