Living Wage For Dunnes Workers

GMB calls on Dunnes Stores management to pay their workers as a minimum the Living Wage of £7.65 an hour.

Why is this important?

The GMB is concerned that despite more than two years of economic growth, working people across the country are still suffering the longest real wage squeeze in over a century. Recently official earnings growth reached its lowest level since records began.

GMB is also concerned given the biggest proportion of low-paid, part time workers in Dunnes is women.
Official figures shows that earning less than the Living Wage is the norm for women in many parts of the country.

With women accounting for almost three-quarters of the country’s six-million part-time workforce, the lack of skilled, decently –paid part-time jobs affects women’s pay and their career prospects far more than it does men.
The idea behind the Living Wage is that a person is paid enough to live decently and to adequately provide for their family.

Please sign the petition and pass on to others to sign, keep following the facebook page for an update on are attempts to gain recognition for Dunnes workers, in the coming weeks GMB will be launching a Public campaign outside all Dunnes stores for members of the Public to sign all above petition.
