Shoppers show partial support for strike at M&S Navan

Shoppers in Navan today were asked to support M&S workers who picketed outside the store on Paddy O'Brien St opposite Navan Shopping Centre in the first of three scheduled one-day strikes ahead of the Christmas festivities.

The workers, all members of the Mandate Trade Union, were, according to a spokesperson, buoyed by the level of suport they received although some members of the public ignored the picket.

Many Christmas shoppers were surprised to be greeted by M&S employees with placards and many passing motorists 'honked' to show their supprt.

The issues, apparently, relate to changes that have been introduced in relation to terms and conditions and also to the pension scheme.

Further action is also also scheduled in the form of one-day strikes next week and also the week after.

There are plans for a one-day strike on Thursday 12th December and also on Friday 20th December.
