Fairness and Decency for Dunnes Workers – Support their Campaign
national | worker & community struggles and protests | event notice Sunday March 22, 2015 23:27 by Zero hours worker
Support the 1 Day Strike on Thurs 2nd April. DO NOT SHOP IN DUNNES STORES THAT DAY!
Many Dunnes Stores wrorkers are being screwed over by the company because they are on zero-rated hours which means you don't know until each given day how many hours you will be working and it can vary alot from week to week. This means you have no idea how much you will be earning from week to week and therefore it becomes almost impossible to budget for anything, let alone pay bills, rent, food etc from one week to the next. And this practice is widespread with other employers.
Dunnes Stores workers want a number of issues addressed including:
PSEU members can help the Dunnes workers in their campaign with a few simple measures.
Visit http://dunnesworkers.com/ to learn about the issues in dispute.
Contact your local Dunnes outlet. Ask to speak to the manager and let him\her know that you support the workers’ campaign for fairness and decency.
Let the workers in Dunnes Stores know that you support them.
Do not shop in Dunnes Stores on the day of the proposed strike and urge your family and friends to do likewise.
Write to the Head Office of Dunnes and voice your support for the workers. The HQ address is at 46 – 50 South Great George’s Street, Dublin 2, Ireland
The position being advocated by the workers and their Union has the support of the Labour Court. Show your support as well.
One worker at Dunnes described how
"I remember what it was like living off cheap frozen meals so I had enough money to buy baby food and nappies. I'm alright now because I'm getting hours but I'm not going back on the bread line just because we get a new manager who doesn't like me. Especially when they have a guaranteed salary. It's easy for them to say everything is grand in Dunnes when they know exactly what they earn week to week. I want the same security"Visit http://dunnesworkers.com/
