national / worker & community struggles and protests / event notice Sunday March 22, 2015 23:27 by Zero hours worker   image 1 image
Many Dunnes Stores wrorkers are being screwed over by the company because they are on zero-rated hours which means you don't know until each given day how many hours you will be working and it can vary alot from week to week. This means you have no idea how much you will be earning from week to week and therefore it becomes almost impossible to budget for anything, let alone pay bills, rent, food etc from one week to the next. And this practice is widespread with other employers.

On Thursday, 2nd April 2015 (Holy Thursday) Mandate members in Dunnes Stores will stage a one day strike in 107 stores across the Republic of Ireland unless senior management in the Company agree to a meeting with the workers through their trade union in order to discuss all of the issues in dispute. read full story / add a comment

There was a good turnout yesterday, Sat 21st in Dublin for the anti-water charges demonstration. The plan was for the various groups to assemble at Heuston Station, Connolly Station and Merrion Square and converge at O'Connell brigde which they did. There were groups from all over the country, from Navan to Clonakility to Galway to Dundalk as well as thousands of people from the various communities in the greater Dublin area. Thousands and thousands arrived with banners, flags and placards of all types adding a lot of colour to the demonstration clearly showing this movement is still very much alive and vibrant and gives us all hope and confidence that we can still win. read full story / add a comment

Potatoes are not only very versatile as a food in dishes, they are good for the soil and will grow in just about any soil. They dislike soggy soil though, because they do all their growing underground. Our annual potato day will again showcase how easy it is to grow potatoes as a pioneer or start-up crop for new gardeners, breaking up heavy soils and also various new ways to grow them more easily with no dig under plastic, under thick mulch and in loose, loamy soil in ridges and beds.
