Union secures increase for some employees of the Irish department store chain.
Dunnes Stores employees have received a 3% pay rise, the Irish Examiner has reported.
Mandate trade union lodged a pay claim in April and the Labour Court had scheduled a hearing on the claim for December.
The pay increase is to be backdated to 3 October.
Gerry Light, assistant general secretary, welcomed the increase but warned that most Dunnes workers are still on low-hour contracts and said the insecurity over hours needed to be addressed immediately.
Mandate represents 4,500 of the 10,000 Dunnes workers.
Drapers has contacted Dunnes for comment.
