Protests were held at six Ikea stores on 3 October, demanding the reinstatement of sacked shop steward Richie Venton, and full average wages for all sick workers.

Members of a multitude of trade unions participated in the simultaneous shows of solidarity, as well as the National Shop Stewards Network, several trades councils and Socialist Party members.

As a next step, the Reinstate Richie Venton campaign has organised an online rally Thursday 8 October at 7pm. See for more.
