Shoe shop workers deliver petition to owners

A petition with over 5,000 signatures has been delivered to the owners of Connolly Shoes in Dun Laoghaire, Co Dublin - in solidarity with four workers who lost their jobs.

They were dismissed by their employer over 12 weeks ago without notice.

Two of the workers were dismissed after failing to sign an undertaking which would change their terms and conditions of employment - the remaining two workers were dismissed following the initial dismissals.

The workers say they are determined to continue their protests until a "fair and equitable outcome" is reached.
