Wallis Workers in Limerick to be Locked Out this Saturday
Thursday 19 September 2013, 11am
Mandate Trade Union members in two Wallis stores in Limerick have voted unanimously in favour of industrial action following the company's decision to implement 'restructuring plans', including widespread redundancies, without agreement with the workers or their representatives.
The company plans to close its Cruises Street store this Saturday and they also plan a major restructuring program in the Childers Road store from Sunday - which will affect 21 workers in total. Mandate has now served strike notice on the company and will place pickets on the two Limerick stores on Monday 23rd September.
The company are refusing to implement a long standing agreed redundancy package, despite paying a dividend of €92million to the parent company in 2012.
