It’s been good for Sinn Féin and Fianna Fáil but bad for Labour and Fine Gael. But what about the Greens, Socialists and independents? We take stock of the local elections as the counts draw to a close.
THOUSANDS OF DUNNE Stores are out on strike today in protest over pay and a lack of job security.
The workers with the Mandate trade union are calling for a review of temporary contracts and for a right of union representation for workers.
However, Dunnes has reportedly warned against the strike, saying it may negatively affect the company and lead to redundancies. Images have emerged of notes urging customers to ignore the pickets and continue to shop at the stores.
Whether or not the chain is your regular, we want to know what you would do: Would you shop in Dunnes Stores today?
