To:   National Negotiating Team – Tesco Ireland

Re:   Union – Company Talks – Wednesday 4 August 2021

Dear Member

Due to the sudden and tragic death of Derek Casserly RIP last Friday the Tesco national negotiations scheduled for tomorrow 4th August have been cancelled. As you know Derek was part of the SIPTU delegation and he was present at our last meeting with the company. It goes without saying the news of his death has been received with great shock and sadness here in Mandate as we had built a deep personal and professional relationship with Derek through the years given he was the designated retail SIPTU representative across a number of different companies. Our next meeting with the company is scheduled to take place next Tuesday 10th August and further details regarding same will issue in due course.
