Tesco workers hoping for resolution after strike called off

The Tesco store in Sligo will continue to operate as usual after industrial action was called off at the weekend.

Staff at the shop were to undertake industrial action from this Wednesday morning in a dispute over changes to pay conditions for staff on pre-1996 contracts.

The two sides took part in talks under the auspices of the Labour Court on Friday evening.

These culminated in an agreement that involved Mandate immediately suspending all industrial action and Tesco issuing a statement in which it confirmed it would not make any changes to the pre-1996 terms and conditions while the talks process is ongoing.

Speaking to Ocean FM Mandate representative for the North West Ciaran Campbell says they are hopeful of a resolution.
