This morning I found out that workers at Tipperary Spring were allegedly fired for trying to join or form a union . SWP are holding a protest on it Monday morning (https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...type=1&theater) . There has not been a peep about this on any of the Irish news sites like the journal or the Indo or any other news or press sites. Along side this consider the staff at Guineys in Dublin who are have been told that they will not be entitled to a pension for the years they ahve worked (some of them payed in for 35+ years).
Luas drivers are going on strike, any other documented attacks on workers please put them here...The employees found about the store closure by telephone.
“They went home from work on Monday evening and they got a phone call telling them not to come in on Tuesday,” said Michael Meegan of MANDATE trade union which represents some of the former employees.
Meegan said the new owners “have made it clear” that they’re not accepting liability for pensions for the 29 employees.
