Ireland -Actions at Dunnes stores continue -June 09, 2015

Protest against insecure labour contracts continue.

Workers at Dunnes Stores continue to organise protest against insecure labour contracts. On 6 June, the workers took to the streets in Dublin, continuing the protests reported in last month’s newsletter. The workers have been campaigning for better pay and working conditions. While several wage hikes have been proposed by Dunnes management, the company has not addressed the disputed zero hours contracts. Unions say that due to Dunnes Stores’ refusal to guarantee working hours, workers could earn full time wages or nothing from one week to the next.
