Ireland's largest trade union, SIPTU held a 'dignity and respect in the workplace' day of action on Tuesday 31st August at the Boots flagship store, in Donegall Square, Belfast.

The day of action which included the distribution of SIPTU badges to workers in the store, was aimed at raising awareness on workers rights and promoting dignity and respect in the workplace.

Speaking on a successful day of action, SIPTU organiser Teri Cregan said,

"The day of action was another important step in highlighting the campaign to ensure workers rights are enshrined in the workplace. The Boots workers were fully supportive of the SIPTU Boots Organising Committee's decision to have the day of action and were happy to take part in the campaign to make sure all their staff, across all the stores, are treated with dignity and respect. Wearing the SIPTU badge was their way of showing support for the campaign, and they were very enthusiastic to carry it through".

"SIPTU will continue to lead the campaign to ensure 'dignity and respect in the workplace' and will work to empower, organise and represent the workers in Boots stores across the north."
