Representation and Right to Dignity at Work

Current situation: Mandate Trade Union and Dunnes Stores management signed a collective agreement in 1996. Dunnes Stores have since ignored this agreement and workers are frequently denied individual and collective representation. Dunnes Stores’s main competitors in both the grocery (Tesco and Supervalu) and the drapery (Penneys and Marks & Spencer) retail industries respect the right of their workers to be represented by a trade union of their choice.

What we want: Dunnes Stores to implement the terms of the 1996 agreement with immediate effect and to recognise and respect the right of workers be represented by a trade union of their choice at both an individual and a collective level.
