Show your support for decent work on April 2nd – spend your money where workers count
As thousands of Dunnes Stores workers prepare to take industrial action in order to achieve decent work and avail of their human right to be represented by a trade union, the Fair Shop campaign is calling on all trade unionists and members of the public to support the Dunnes Stores workers by spending their money where workers count.
The Fair Shop campaign was established in 2012 with the primary objective of recognising retail employers who do recognise Mandate Trade Union for collective bargaining purposes. 
Designated “Fair Shops” include: Tesco, Penneys, Supervalu (formerly Superquinn), Marks & Spencer, Arnotts, and many more [List below].
John Douglas, Mandate General Secretary said, “Thursday, 2nd April is about decent work. It’s about having a voice in the workplace and it’s about being respected by your employer. 
“Thousands of Dunnes Stores workers cannot avail of their human right to be represented by a trade union of their choice. They cannot have an input into the types of contract they are employed under. The best thing that trade unionists and members of the public can do is respect the Dunnes Stores picket and spend their money in a Fair Shop instead.
Full list of Fair Shops include:

Arnotts
Boots
Brown Thomas
