Mandate Trade Union, the union for retail and bar workers in Ireland, had been pursuing a number of claims during the past twelve months on behalf of members in Penneys, and last week the Labour Court issued a recommendation on those claims.

The Labour Court has recommendation included a three per cent pay increase from June 1 2013; the abolition of the under 18 rate of pay; and introduction of banded hour contracts within one month.

The court also recommended against a new three point salary scale to replace the current six point scale, something the company had been pursuing.
