Around 1,000 Tesco employees have voted in favour of industrial action over plans to reduce their pay and conditions.
The Mandate trade union, which represents workers in Tesco Ireland, including in Kerry, balloted their members on strike action this lunchtime.
The ballot included an 85 per-cent turnout and 99 per-cent of those voted to back the move.
Tesco has opened a voluntary redundancy scheme and has deferred reductions in pay and conditions until May 16th.
Brendan O’Hanlon is from the Mandate Trade Union.
