Request from Mandate Trade Union regarding dispute with Tesco
Mandate Trade Union representing workers in Tesco has contacted fellow trade unions about action starting tomorrow in Tesco stores.
Tesco Ireland are attempting to impose changes to the contracts of employment for approximately 250 workers employed before 1996 which would result in some workers experiencing reduced incomes of up to 20%. The company – which is the most profitable retailer in the country with estimated profits of more than €250 million annually – has never justified the cuts they are seeking to impose on workers who earn slightly more than €14 per hour.
Mandate has requested that trade union members shop with their conscience, not pass pickets placed on Tesco stores and show their support for their members.
