Dear Ms. Byrne, 

I am receiving a high volume of calls from our members in Penneys Liffey Valley regarding the aforementioned. I have attached the relevant agreement for your review. I am aware that this matter has been raised locally by Mandate representatives but unfortunately no roster or explanation for the delay has been forthcoming. As per the procedures the undersigned will be facilitating a collective grievance regarding the matter.

Given the inevitable challenges late rosters will present for our members and their commitments outside of work I anticipate that the company will make every effort to facilitate our members.

I trust the above is in order and that every effort will be made to remedy this unacceptable development without any further delay.

Yours sincerely,

Eoin Griffin
