Staff from Elverys, Longford joined their counterparts from around the country in marches in Castlebar and Dublin last weekend.
Staff from Elverys stores nationwide turned out in force to McHale Park, Castlebar and Croke Park in Dublin at the weekend, marching in favour of a management buyout for the company, which is currently in examinership.
Speaking to the Leader before the marches, Manager of Elverys, Longford, Johanna Smith explains; “Management is saying if they win and buy Elverys, they’ll save all 700 jobs.”
The campaign, SOS Elverys 700, has garnered a lot of support nationwide, with thousands showing their support online.
Customers and supporters are invited to sign a petition to rally support for the campaign. The petition can be signed in any Elverys store, or online on Facebook or Twitter.
