Clare Daly TD calls on DAA and Spar to protect the jobs of former Point Three workers
Lack of reassurances to 15 staff a scandal
“Following the decision by the DAA to put out to tender two kiosk spaces previously operated by Point Three Limited both outlets were closed on 15th October.
“Workers were told that Spar won the tenders. What should have followed was a relatively seamless refitting of both shops and under the laws relating to the transfer of undertakings the Point Three employees would continue to work under Spar.
“However since the closure of the Point Three shops workers were told that there would be a delay of four to six weeks before Spar would be in situ thus creating a considerable loss of income. However there has been no engagement with the 15 workers by Spar management to reassure them of their jobs.
“I call on Spar and the DAA to properly engage with the workers and furthermore ensure that between them they compensate the workers for any loss of income arising from these delays.”
