Mandate has said that a group of 100 shop stewards will meet within the next fortnight to set a date for further industrial actionNews

Dunnes Stores workers who belong to Mandate trade union are to set a date for further industrial action within the next two weeks.

The move follows a meeting of the union’s National Disputes Committee held earlier today (13 April).Mandate assistant general secretary Gerry Light said members were angered that Dunnes had not yet agreed to come to the table and are subsequently set to escalate their campaign.

Within the next fortnight, a meeting of approximately 100 shop stewards will set a date for when further industrial action will be held.

The possibility of holding a public event such as march or protest to highlight their campaign will also be discussed.

John Douglas, Mandate general secretary, said the union is not ruling out legal action on behalf of Dunnes workers who have been dismissed or demoted. Mandate could therefore potentially take individual cases on behalf of employees who have been allegedly victimised by Dunnes management for participating in the strike on 2 April.
