Dear Member

We hope this correspondence finds you and yours safe and well.

As you are aware SuperValu MOPI and Mandate Trade Union recently agreed a Voluntary Redundancy Programme in the Companies Stores of Concern. Although the process was primarily aimed at Sales Assistants, the process was open to applicants from other grades also.

The Company informed Mandate that they had received a number of applications for Voluntary Redundancy from within the Baker Grade in the Stores of Concern and wished to engage with your union in an attempt to reach an agreement which may allow for a limited number of Voluntary Redundancies from the Blanchardstown, Bray, Northside, Swords and Walkinstown Stores and centralisation of Treat range production to the Lucan Bakery.

Mandate set up a small negotiation team consisting of Ms. Barbara Anderson – Mandate Industrial Officer, Mr. David King – Baker & National Negotiation Team Member and the undersigned with a view to exploring the possibilities of opening up a Voluntary Redundancy programme for Bakers in the aforementioned stores. As a result of these discussions an agreement has been reached that may allow for a small number of Voluntary Redundancies.

In order to brief all Baker Members in the 5 Stores on the proposal document a meeting has been arranged to take place online via Zoom on Monday 29th March at 4:30pm. The details for the Meeting are outlined below.

If you have any questions or queries with regard to the contents of this correspondence please do not hesitate to contact the undersigned on 018746321 or

Yours fraternally
For Mandate Trade Union
