Marks & Spencer strike averted after agreement reached

Sam Griffin

A planned strike at Marks and Spencer stores has been averted after the union representing workers reached an agreement with store bosses last week.

The strike, planned for stores in Dun Laoghaire, Mullingar, Naas and Tallaght tomorrow, was called off by union Mandate after the company issued workers with compulsory redundancy notices.

The company had failed to offer “any exploration of alternatives” according to the union which prompted the action.

Mandate and Marks & Spencer negotiated a settlement which was balloted on and accepted by the members in the four stores last Wednesday.
