FORMER Debenhams workers are to stage a protest outside the store in Limerick later today.
As the British retailer attempts to move stock out of the former outlet in O’Connell Street – which closed just before Easter – workers are bidding to block such attempts until they get what they feel is a fair redundancy deal from the firm.
It comes as staff voted 97% in favour to stop stock and Debenhams assets leaving the O’Connell Street store.
Jane Crowe, shop steward said: “The stock in the 11 Irish stores is our leverage and bargaining power with the company to get a redundancy deal for our decades of service.”
An appeal has been issued for trade unionists to join the rally, which kicks off at 3pm today.
