Sinn Féin Cllr Pa Daly is hoping people support the Dunnes Stores workers today.

MANDATE trade union have organised a Solidarity Day today to show Dunnes Stores workers, who are due to go on strike on April 2, and it has the backing of Sinn Féin.

Sinn Féin Kerry County Councillor Pa Daly has called on the public and other political parties to show their support at an event at The Mall in the town centre from 3pm-6pm.

“The workers would be very much encouraged by a show of public support,” said local Sinn Féin councillor Pa Daly. “The public can also show support on the day of the strike on Thursday April 2. The workers have been left with no other option but to go on strike. They have exhausted all other courses of action,” said Cllr Daly.

“It is not too late for the management to avoid this strike from going ahead.  They need to engage with the workers union’s representatives to negotiate an acceptable resolution to the issues affecting staff,” he continued.

Over 200 Kerry Dunnes Stores Mandate workers are to strike on Holy Thursday next week.

The stoppage relates to a dispute over pay, contracts and an alleged refusal by the company to negotiate with the union on grievances under the terms of an agreement reached in 1996.
