Ireland -Strike action averted at EBS -September 11, 2013

Head office staff at the state-owned bank EBS could begin strike action after talks between trade unions and management at the Labour Relations Commission broke down. At the heart of the dispute is a bonus payment known as the ‘13-month’ that was paid to staff at the EBS Building Society before it was bailed out by taxpayers and the merger with AIB. The strike was called off after EBS agreed to pay the 13th month bonuses dating back to 2011 along with the October salaries. The EBS workers will receive at least €789 in bonuses now.
