Staff at the Thomas Cook travel agency are continuing a sit-in protest at the company's office on Grafton Street, despite a High Court injunction.

The workers have been occupying the store since Friday in an effort to secure an improved redundancy package, following the company's decision to close its two Dublin offices.

The High Court may sit tomorrow morning to hear the matter in full after a temporary injuction was issued yesterday ordering staff to leave the premises.

Gerry Moriarty, General Secretary of the Transport Salaried Staffs' Association, said he met lawyers this afternoon and has advised staff of the legal position.

He said the sit-in would continue.

He confirmed that a solidarity protest is to go ahead tomorrow morning at 10.30am outside the Thomas Cook office on Grafton Street.

The UNITE trade union has offered its support and is to join the demonstration tomorrow.

UNITE Regional Secretary Jimmy Kelly said the workers had been treated abysmally and he described their protest as an action of last resort to achieve fair treatment.
