Strike this weekend over pay and conditions in two stores of Tesco

Staff
plan to strike tomorrow for the first time. While the Mandate Trade Union
claims Tesco has not engaged with them in an effort to resolve the dispute,
Tesco staff in Sligo and Carrick-on-Shannon are striking this weekend in a row
walking off the job for the third time this month over pay and conditions.

John
Douglas, Mandate General Secretary, said: “It is unfortunate that our members
are forced to strike yet again due to Tesco’s continued refusal to engage with
their workers’’. And he added: “We hope the public will understand the
necessity for our members to defend their interests and put the blame firmly
where it belongs, with Tesco management”

Tesco released
a statement saying they are extremely disappointed with the strike action. And
reacting to the strike they said “This series of one-day strikes is
entirely out of proportion as these are local disputes involving local issues
that don’t warrant such disruption in Christmas week. Despite the strikes, our
stores will remain open today and Saturday and we thank our colleagues and our
customers for their co-operation.”
