35. ex-Debenhams striker Michelle Gavin explains their dispute

The Week at Work

Michelle Gavin, an ex-Debenhams worker from Waterford with 27 years service, explains the strike and its impact on all workers. The workers have been on strike for 230 days now - in rain, hail and storms. She talks about government inaction and being left high and dry first by the company and then by the State. Michelle also talks about loss and trauma during the strike as well as how she has taken actions she never thought she would.  We hope this will form part of a series of interviews with ex-Debenhams workers. Because they deserve to be heard.
