Workers at the Thomas Cook travel agency are today facing into their third day of a lock-in protest.

They are still refusing to leave its Dublin stores until the company negotiates a fairer redundancy deal.

Staff have been involved in the protest since the travel agent announced it was shutting both its Dublin outlets with immediate effect on Friday morning.

It had been due to close its Irish operations at the end of the month.

Yesterday, the High Court issued an order asking staff to leave the building.

General secretary of Transport Salaried Staffs' Association Gerry Doherty said staff will not leave until the redundancy offer is improved.
