Sinn Féin - On Your Side

Tesco must engage properly with workers – Ellis

7 February, 2017 - by Dessie Ellis TD

Sinn Féin Dublin North West TD Dessie Ellis has called on Tesco to respect their workers’ rights and union representation. Speaking today, Deputy Ellis said:

“Sinn Féin fully support the Tesco workers in their defence of their working conditions. Many of my constituents work for Tesco and the way in which it has tried to force in new contracts on its employees does not belong in modern Ireland.

“Ignoring Union representation and employees concerns about the new contracts which would see some people losing a good percentage of their wages is simply not acceptable.

“Tesco must engage sincerely with the employees union, Mandate, immediately and stop trying to undermine their workers’ pay and conditions further.”
