Strikers reject Labour Court recommendation that they go back to work.

The Labour Court investigated the Dunnes Stores dispute following a request by Minister for Labour Ruairí Quinn. It found that the strikers had succeeded in highlighting the issue of apartheid and recommended that supermarkets implement a voluntary restriction on the sale of South African goods. But it also said that there was nothing further to be gained from the strike and that the workers should return to their jobs. 

Conor Fennell reports on the Labour Court findings while reporter Mary Fanning talks to striker Mary Manning, who says the strikers will have achieved nothing if they just go back to work.
