The Taoiseach has let us down badly

The Taoiseach has let us down badly

Debenhams, a large retailer in the UK and Ireland closed last year with the loss of thousands of jobs. Workers in Ireland were promised 4 weeks pay per year of service rather than the statutory 2 weeks as that had been agreed between the company and their union, Mandate.

The workers are seeking redundancy terms of two weeks’ pay per year of service, plus statutory redundancy entitlements of two weeks per year of service. The workers say this matches an agreement between the retailer and trade union Mandate made in 2016.

For updates check their page on Facebook or Twitter.

Liam Ruiséal teo

Liam Ruiséal teo

Liam Ruiséal’s shop is closed for some time now after trading in the same corner for more than 100 years. In 2018 you could still see books in there but they were advertising their final reductions. Here’s Health will be moving in there this year.

The Golden Pages still has the number of the shop. I wonder if that page will ever be updated?
