GAME workers now into 8th day of store occupations

The GAME workers are now into their 8th day of store occupations across 13 different stores nationwide. It has now become apparent that a takeover of 333 of the British stores has taken place.

Joe Higgins TD said of the occupations “Just as with the La Senza dispute, we are once again seeing a major retail store laying-off its workers so as to be more appealing to prospective buyers. This opportunist measure aimed at escaping statutory redundancy payments are nothing other than scandalous and must be immediately legislated against.”

He added “I call on Ministers Burton and Bruton to immediately intervene into the dispute to ensure that the GAME worker’s pay entitlements are met and to enable these courageous workers to be able to return to their homes and families.”
