The Guinness Staff Union has been contacted by our colleagues in the MANDATE Trade Union asking for our support in their on going dispute with Lloyd’s Pharmacy Ireland Limited.
Mr Gerry Light the Assistant General Secretary with Mandate has asked for support in the upcoming two one day stoppages by MANDATE member . Pickets will be place on Lloyd s Pharmacy Ireland Limited on Saturday 18th and Saturday 25th August.
As Gerry explained ” The Core of the dispute is the refusal of the employer to engage with MANDATE as the choose representative for more than a third of their workforce. This is despite the fact that the Labour Court has issued a recommendation requesting them to do so”
So if any GSU member is out and about on the 18th or 25th August and you come across Lloyd’s Pharmacy Ireland Ltd staff participating in the work stoppage in support of their just claims Please offer your support and a word of encouragement , it means a lot .
Thank You Colleagues.
The Guinness Staff Union
