RE: Air Conditioning
19th July 2021
I hope this correspondence finds you and yours safe and well.
Mandate have been contacted by several of our members from the Penneys Swords Store over the past number of days with regard to the excessive levels of heat in the store and the the fact that the Air-Conditioning units, whilst operating, are not reducing the Temperature sufficiently. Particular attention has also been brought to the fact that the Air Conditioning units are not operational until just before opening time despite the fact that members are rostered to work well in advance of the Store opening.
It is the intention of the undersigned to lodge a Collective Grievance on behalf of our members with the Company in regard to this matter. If you wish to add your name to the Collective Grievance, which is outlined below, then please enter your details in the area provided below and press the Submit button.
Please note that your Name and Contact Details WILL NOT be shared with the Company when the Grievance is submitted to them. It is the intention of the undersigned to raise this grievance at the earliest opportunity therefore I am requesting that any member who wishes to sign the grievance do so at their earliest opportunity.
Mandate will keep you updated of any and all developments with regard to this matter.
I wish to form part of a collective grievance lodged with my employer, through my union Mandate, with regard to the excessive levels of heat I am currently being expected to work in and I am calling on my employer to immediately put in place measures to reduce the temperature within the Store. Furthermore, I am calling on my employer to ensure that the Air Conditioning is turned on and performing at optimal levels at all times that the Store has staff rostered to work.
