Over 70 staff at Tesco's Longford store are set to go on strike

More than seventy staff at Tesco’s Longford store look set  to stage an indefinite all-out strike on Valentine's Day after staff voted overwhelmingly in favour of industrial action.


Around 60 employees unanimously voted to support long serving staff who are currently embroiled in a pay dispute with the grocery giant.

The row, which has been brewing for close to a year, stems from plans to move pre-1996 staff onto lower paid contracts.

The ballot was held last night at a special meeting at the Longford Arms Hotel.
