Ireland -Luas drivers vote to strike -October 08, 2012

A majority of 93% of Luas tram drivers in Dublin voted in favour of two 48-hours strikes to be held in November. The drivers are in conflict with Luas management over work rosters and rest days. A SIPTU representative stated the Luas drivers have already made a considerable sacrifice in agreeing to forego any wage claims until 2015 and are only asking for a total number of rest days that amount to weekends plus 23 days. The drivers also want to reduce their 9 hour shifts to 8 hour shifts.
