The supermarket chain has been accused of treating staff "disgracefully".

Iceland workers at a store in north Dublin are staging a sit-in - after they were told they had no job.

It's happening at the supermarket's Coolock branch, while it's believed a number of other stores didn't open today.

An examiner was appointed to the chain's Irish operation earlier this week - meaning it can continue to operate while new funding is found.

Labour TD for Dublin Bay North, Aodhán Ó Ríordáin is calling for Enterprise Minister Simon Coveney to intervene;

“A ridiculous situation has occurred at Iceland stores across Dublin. Workers have been treated absolutely disgracefully by the company and it’s time for Minister Coveney to step up and get clarity for these workers.

“My understanding is that Iceland stores across Dublin have been shuttered without any explanation to workers including shops on Talbot Street and Coolock. Minister Coveney needs to urgently find a pathway to consultation with these workers to ensure that they are not out of pocket in terms of wages owed and any potential redundancy payments they may be entitled to."
