Ireland -Bus drivers divided over cost-cutting plans -October 30, 2013

Dublin Bus has said it will begin to implement a €11m cost cutting plan without delay, after a ballot of drivers resulted in 55% voting in favour of the cost-reduction measures. However, the ballot has split the drivers’ unions, with the National Bus and Rail Union passing the plan and SIPTU rejecting it. The long-running row about pay cuts led to a three-day strike in August.
