All-out srike at Tralee chemist averted.

The threat of an all-out strike by Mandate members at Leahy`s Chemist Tralee has been averted. Three staff members had served Management of the pharmacy with notice of official action, due to start today, if their concerns were not addressed.Yesterday, union officials and staff met representatives of the Uniphar group, whose subsidiary I.P.O.S bought Leahy`s last year. Jim O`Connell of Mandate told Radio Kerry that the meeting had been extremely satisfactory, and that staff were delighted with the company’s attitude. A staff member who had been suspended will return to work next Tuesday.
