Dunnes Stores faces industrial action on Holy Thursday



Nearly 5,000 Dunnes Stores staff, all members of the Mandate trade union, are poised to undertake a one-day strike on Thursday, April 02, unless management engages with the workers on the ongoing dispute about work and pay conditions at the company.

The planned action on Holy Thursday will affect 107 Dunnes Stores outlets across the country where the union has member representation, and it’s likely to affect sales of alcohol on the day before Good Friday.

According to Mandate, 67 percent of its members balloted in favor of industrial action last week.

In response to this ballot, Dunne’s Stores management allegedly took a hardened stance and warned of layoffs and redundancies if “harm” was inflicted on the company as a result of any stoppage.

Mandate insists that the strike is entirely avoidable, providing the company engages in talks to reach a solution.
