Debenhams: Fighting closures and redundancies in the UK and sending solidarity to Ireland
On 17 July protests were held in London, Leeds, Bradford, Plymouth and Glasgow, organised by Usdaw members and supported by activists from the wider trade union movement.

Protesters sent solidarity to Irish Debenhams workers fighting for decent redundancy pay after the company put the entire store network into administration, and against the 12 (and possibly more) store closures and over a thousand jobs being cut in the UK.
Socialist Party member and Usdaw president Amy Murphy attended the London protest and spoke in a personal capacity.
