Tesco Calls For Mandate ‘Re-Think’
Tesco’s public dispute with worker’s union Mandate continues, as the retailer calls on Mandate to ‘accept the Labour Court Recommendation and re-think its plan to damage the company with a strike’.
The call follows a decision by Tesco Santry to reject the planned strike, alongside Tesco stores in Cork, Dublin, Louth, Waterford and Wicklow.
Tesco criticised Mandate for its strike plans, saying that ‘in a company of 14,500 staff, balloting less than one sixth of stores and being rejected by six of those requires Mandate to re-think its strike.’ It also called the union’s decision not to accept the Labour Court’s recommendations ‘unusual’ and stated its intention to see all Tesco stores open for business as usual on the day of the planned action, Tuesday, 14 February.
