The Congress Retail Sector Group (RSG) is an all-island grouping that comprises key unions with members across the retail and distribution sector.
The Congress Sector Group is currently campaigning for better conditions of workers across the Retail Sector, arising from their huge contribution as essential workers during the pandemic.
This had an enormous impact on the sector, north and south, with tens of thousands of retail staff becoming de facto essential service workers overnight and operating on the frontline of the public health emergency, alongside workers in health care and other key sectors.
The campaign highlights the need to tackle endemic low pay and insecure work across the sector, north and south, and to prioritise Decent Work as part of any recovery.
The work of the campaign has been referenced by the National, Economic & Social Council (NESC) as part of its Shared Island initiative.
