Tesco strike deferred following WRC intervention
Tomorrow’s strike at Tesco Ireland (Thursday, 26th May 2016) has been deferred following intervention from the Workplace Relations Commission (WRC).
Both parties will now attend the WRC in an effort to resolve the issues in dispute under the provision that all agreed procedures between the Union and the Company will be fully exhausted should agreement not be reached at the WRC.
Tesco will not set any further dates for the implementation of contract changes and Mandate have therefore deferred their intention to proceed with industrial action.
In the meantime, Mandate and Tesco have agreed that no hostilities between the parties will take place until those procedures have been fully exhausted.
Staff members should report for work as rostered tomorrow.
A detailed update for members will follow as soon as possible.
