Dunnes workers vote for action
06 Mar 2015 13:01
Workers at Dunnes Stores have voted in favour of industrial action in a row over pay and conditions.
-
The Mandate trade union is accusing the retailer of using low-hour contracts, and is seeking improved security of hours and earnings for staff.
-
67% of union members voted to take industrial action.
-
The Labour Court has recommended that the company engage with unions to discuss the issues in dispute, but in a letter to its 14,000 staff last month, Dunnes said it had a constitutional right not to engage with unions.
-
It also warned workers they could face redundancy if they go on strike.
-
Dunnes Stores said it had put in place two pay rises and maintained employment levels despite the challenging economic environment.
-
More than 5,000 Mandate members were asked to ballot - the unions say just over 3,000 took part in the vote.
