Global Month of Solidarity: Pickets at Lidl stores in Ireland

August 15th, August 23rd, and now on August 29th workers organized with the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) in Ireland picketed in front of Lidl stores in different cities in support of fellow workers struggling for their full wages and compensations in Dhaka.

As part of a month of action called by the International Confederation of Labour (ICL – CIT) in solidarity with 6000 sacked garment workers, members of the IWW continue to hold information pickets at Lidl Stores in Ireland. The action is seen as an international effort to help raise awareness with the public, of the ongoing struggle by garment workers in Bangladesh, represented by members of the Garment Workers Trade Union Centre (GWTUC).

This weekend the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) have once again held public information pickets outside Lidl stores in both Belfast and Derry. To date, information pickets have been placed outside Lidl stores both and south of the country to help highlight the ongoing struggle by GWTUC members to ensure they are not isolate or forgotten.
