Dear Shop Steward,
Please find below the following important updates:
Part-time Service Leader Negotiations
We are currently in the process of finalising a date to meet with the Penneys senior management team and our negotiation committee to deal with the outstanding matters concerning the impacted members. As soon as this date is finalised we will inform you and the relevant members of the details.
Pay & Benefits claim 2022
As the current pay deal is due to expire on the 20th October 2022 we are now preparing to launch a new claim. To this end, we are in the process of preparing a Pay & Benefits survey for all of our members in Penneys. This survey is due to launch on the 18th of September and the results of this will formulate the basis for the claim to the company. Full participation from amongst all members will lead to the most accurate reflection.
We have written to the company regarding the P&C Supervisors and the impact on this population following the company restructuring. As soon as a response is received, we shall advise yourself and the impacted members accordingly.
Shop Steward – O’Connell Street, Dublin
Following the recent restructuring in the company, a need to replace the O’Connell Street representative Ms. Geraldine O’Reilly on the National Team has arisen. We have been informed that Ms. Linda Hamilton from the O’Connell Street store, has kindly volunteered to step up as Geraldine’s replacement for that store.
We trust you will find the above to be in order, however should you have any queries in relation to this matter and wish to make contact, please please contact your local union office and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
