Former Xtra-vision Employees Are Picketing Outside The Henry Street Shop

"It's the worst possible outcome we could have imagined"


Former employees of Xtra-vision-HMV are picketing outside the outlet on Henry Street.

The chain entered liquidation just days ago on January 27, resulting in the loss of 580 jobs around the country.

Former employees have rallied together in the wake of these closures, claiming that they received no prior notice or indication that this would take place before last Wednesday.

Speaking to Newstalk, Phil from a Carlow branch of the store said,

It's the worst possible outcome we could have imagined, we're screwed over, basically. We feel like it's been a kick in the face, a complete slap, we had no idea and this just happens.

Phil said that he's yet to receive his P45 from the company.
