Ireland -Rail dispute moved into arbitration -November 07, 2015

Following a large-scale strike, reported in last month’s newsletter, a conflict between trade unions and Irish Rail has been moved into arbitration. The agreement to hold mediated talks means a second strike, which was planned for 6 November, is narrowly averted. The rail workers are demanding a pay rise, which Irish Rail has offered in exchange for longer standard working hours and lower staffing levels. Unions refused the offer, arguing Irish Rail is trying to get employees to finance their own raise.
