Re: Tesco Temple Bar Collective Grievance

Dear Mr. Tyrrell,

Please find attached a collective grievance from members of Mandate in Tesco Temple Bar. The members concerned anticipate the company will engage with the contents of their grievance as early as possible given its time sensitive nature of the matter in dispute.

Please contact me at your earliest convenience so that an agreed arrangement on these issues can be found in conjunction with our local union representative.

“We, the undersigned staff of Tesco Temple Bar wish to raise our concerns at the company’s decision to alter our long established Christmas Trading arrangements.

Last year the shop traded until 7pm on Christmas Eve, this year it is planned that we will trade until 9pm. Dublin Bus traditionally run their last service at 9pm on Christmas Eve, coupled with reduced capacity, this will present staff with huge problems getting home.

This is the first time in Temple Bar that working past 5.15pm on Christmas Eve is being considered on a non-voluntary basis. Normally arrangements are made in good time, with staff being engaged with at a local level. We are also concerned that with lock-up procedures that it takes up to 30 minutes post-closing to customers for staff to be ready to leave the building.

We are asking that all of the Christmas trading hours for Tesco Temple Bar be reviewed and that the shop trade in line with its trading hours from previous years. This is primarily a staff welfare issue.”
