Tesco approach to workers deeply unjust, says FF spokesman

Calleary calls on company to respect workers, who have delayed their strike

Fianna Fáil Jobs spokesman Dara Calleary has said the approach taken by Tesco management towards long-serving workers at the company is deeply unjust and unfair.

The British-owned multinational is proposing changes to the contracts of long serving workers that will see a reduction in their pay.

A nationwide strike due to go ahead tomorrow has been called off, to allow talks to happen later this week.

Deputy Calleary has written to the CEO of Tesco Ireland outlining his concerns.

"They should be treated fairly, and should be treated with respect...

"The success of the business in Ireland is based on the efforts of these workers, and on their interaction with workers."
