Tesco Longford staff vote unanimously for strike action

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.
