Brady condemns illegal actions in attempt to break Tesco strike
Sinn Féin TD for Wicklow/East Carlow John Brady has condemned the painting over of the pedestrian crossing outside Tesco, Bray overnight.
Teachta Brady said:
“The Mandate Trade Union have said that Tesco were behind the painting over of the pedestrian crossing. If true, this is a new low for the company.
“Strike action by Tesco workers in Bray has been taking place at the pedestrian crossing since Tuesday.
“The damage caused is not only outrageous, but a criminal offence as the pedestrian crossing is on a public road.
“I have been in contact with the Gardaí and Wicklow County Council; both are taking these actions very seriously.
“The blatant disregard for the local community, especially for young children who use the crossing daily on their way to school, with four schools in the area, is unacceptable.
“The careless actions of those responsible threaten health and safety and have made crossing the road extremely dangerous.
“I have been supporting Tesco workers in their strike action at Bray and Greystones and I continue to support the workers.
“Any actions taken by management that impacts on the community are especially unnecessary and this behaviour will not be tolerated.”
