RGDATA Calls On Government To Address Effects Of Banking T&Cs On Job Creation

RGDATA has asked the Government’s Interdepartmental Group, tasked with progressing the Action Plan for Jobs 2013 in the retail sector, to scrutinize the impact that changes in banking terms and conditions is having on job creation.

“The Action Plan for Jobs will not be delivered unless the Government is prepared to crack the whip on the banks," said said Tara Buckley, Director General, RGDATA. "Recent increases in bank lodgment fees and other changes aimed at making banks more efficient are having a direct impact on our members, their security and the security of their staff and families."

Dundalk retailer Colin Fee and Hugh Doyle of Donnybrook Fair, Dublin were part of the delegation, which also addressed other issues in the meeting that are impacting on competitiveness for independent retailers.

Fee urged the group to consider the impact the reintroduction of the JLC wage regime would have on job retention and creation, and called for the enforcement of regulatory requirements to stop competitors operating outside the law.

Doyle spoke of employment initiatives and locational incentives for retailers based in town centres.
