Mandate secures pay rise for long-service workers in Kavanagh Group Supervalu’s

Friday 1 March 2024

After 3 months of long negotiations, Mandate and Kavanagh Group came to an agreement to ensure a pay rise for its long-service workers in Supervalu stores across the West, including Donegal, Mayo, Sligo, and Galway.

Over the past 3 weeks, Mandate staff and shop stewards have visited Supervalu stores across the West to ballot members and discuss the pay proposals with them. This ballot concluded in a yes vote with 87% of members accepting the pay proposals.

The deal culminated in a pay increase of 5.75% for those with 5 years or more service, which is above inflation.

Kavanagh’s have committed to pay the increased rate as soon as possible and we expect this pay rise, and the backdate pay to be in people’s pockets in the coming weeks.

Further to the pay rise, it was also agreed that those with long service would get a further award package recognising their time employed with the company.

Mandate continues to represent Supervalu workers across the country, including those in Kavanagh’s Supervalu’s. If you want to join Mandate and be part of future discussions on pay and conditions in your workplace, join today
