This week on Policed, we talk to Michelle Gavin, who worked for Debenhams in Waterford for over 25 years. She was on the picket in Waterford for over a year, and tells us about the interactions they had with An Garda Síochána. We examine in detail how the Gardaí were used in the dispute, but also question whether they had to act as they did. Michelle Byrne, of Unite, also joins us to tease through those bigger questions the policing of trade union disputes.
