Ms. Sophie Walsh (former Deputy Shop Steward) has agreed to step up to the role of Shop Steward in the Merrion Store, a decision we really appreciate and thank her for.

Recently there was a need to seek nominations for the position of Health & Safety Worker Representative for the Tesco Merrion Store.

I am pleased to advise that Mr. Ujjval Patel is now the newly elected H&S Rep for your store, subject to completing the required Health & Safety Training for H&S elected Reps.

Therefore, the appropriate level of training will be provided in 2022 to Ujjval, so as to enable him to carry out his duties as Health and Safety Worker Representative.
