RGDATA has told Tanaiste Leo Varadkar that staff recruitment is a challenge for independent retailers.
During an online Economic Forum meeting with Tanaiste Leo Varadkar, director general of the RGDATA Tara Buckley told the meeting that independent retailers were finding it challenging to recruit additional staff for summer work.
The meeting followed the announcement of the government’s Economic Recovery Plan.
Buckley also urged the government to ensure that the Town Centre First policy was not diluted, as she explained that it was an important part of delivering recovery and regeneration in towns throughout the country.
The RGDATA is the representative association for over 4,000 independent family owned grocery shops, convenience stores, forecourt stores and supermarkets in Ireland.
