Retail Sector Organising

As a group of unions we acknowledge the real issues and concerns for workers within the Retail sector and have committed to working directly with our Retail members on local issues in the Cork area.

Our group consists of representatives from a number of unions in Retail operating in Cork.  As an initial step and to better understand members’ concerns, we are bringing together Shop Stewards from all unions in Mahon Shopping Centre and Mahon Retail park in early 2016.   This will ensure that we have a clear work programme which incorporates and priorities the needs and concerns of local workers.

Understanding the power of collective strength, we will also provide opportunities for workers across different employers and organisations to get to know each other, build lasting relations and learn more about their rights in the workplace.

If you are working in this sector and have any questions or queries relating to the workplace or are interested in becoming a union member, please get in touch with us at and we can help. 

Upcoming events and campaigns will be advertised online via our website, facebook page and twitter accounts, where you can follow us and keep up to date with all our activity.
