Tesco Balbriggan Demonstration

25th July 2023  

Attention:       All Mandate members Tesco Balbriggan

Re:                 Collective Action Demonstration against Tesco actions   

Dear Member,           

Tesco Balbriggan Workers will display their anger with the actions of your Employer this Friday, 28th July at 4.00pm in the carpark of the Tesco Store. Please contact your Shop Steward or House Committee for further details. If you are not directly affected by the recent unilateral changes to conditions and earnings imposed on the Dotcom Workers by Tesco, do not make the mistake of thinking you are safe. This company has a clear tactic of divide and conquer.

You should by now have seen the statement from An Taoiseach last week recommending Tesco sit and talk to your Union. If you have not, please click here: https://youtu.be/Mv0eToqBx5o

If you think you are safe, please see this testimony from a Tesco worker from Galway: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BOl-uytOKWY&feature=youtu.be

In addition to the above, you, the Tesco workers, prioritized what you wish to be included in your Pay and Benefit Claim for 2023 and this claim was formally lodged by Mandate’s President, Ms Denise Curran, on Monday 10th July. To watch this please click here: https://youtu.be/mOzjummq5EA  

It is now time for you join your Colleagues and send a clear message to this Employer that you will have your say and you will not be ignored. Please come out and join the demonstration next Friday, and remember no Work Uniforms are allowed to be worn at this demonstration.

Yours sincerely, 

Amanda Kane
