Iceland staff stayed overnight in their former workplace as the sit-in at the Talbot Street branch continues.
Workers have now formed a roster to ensure the demonstration keeps going until resolution is found. Staff are demanding clarity about their pay a week after it was announced three of the retailer's Dublin stores would close permanently.
People Before Profit's Bernard Mulvany is calling on staff from other Iceland branches to get involved with the demonstration. The Coolock and Northside branches also shut abruptly last Wednesday, with staff claiming they received no prior notice of the closures.
Bernard told Dublin Live: "We're not going to disband this protest until people have money in their bank accounts. We're asking workers from the Coolock and Northside branches to either join our demonstration or form pickets in their own shops, because they haven't received any resolution either."
He added that staff will not leave the store until their demands are met. Two female staff members manned the shop overnight and were relieved this morning by other workers at 9am.
Coolock staff previously held a sit-in at their branch after Wednesday's closures. They agreed to leave the premises but claimed they still have not received any updates about their pay.
People Before Profit TDs such as Richard Boyd Barrett and Paul Murphy visited the store earlier today in solidarity with workers. One staff member is allegedly owed €1000 euro in back-dated pay.
Dublin Live has contacted the interim examiner of Iceland for comment.
