Re:        National Shop Stewards Meeting, Pay&Benefits Claim and Covid-19 Survey

Dear Member,

What follows is a brief update from the National Negotiating Committee.

National Shop Stewards Meeting

A meeting of the National Shop Stewards group took place on Wednesday the 16th of June, it was very well attended. The group were presented with the company’s proposals which were unanimously rejected. Further engagement has been sought with the company and we will keep you fully informed as to any further developments.


It was agreed by the National Shop Stewards group that a short survey of members regarding the company’s ongoing response to Covid-19 would be conducted by the union. Please follow this link to complete the survey.


It is essential that we remain well organised in Heatons/SportsDirect/Brand Max. The challenges faced by our members across the retail sector over the past 15 months have proven once again that we must build a strong and effective membership prepared to meet all future challenges. You can assist your fellow members to join by sharing the following link with them joinmandate.ie

Yours fraternally,
On behalf of the National Negotiating Team,

Mandy Kane
Divisional Organiser
