Ireland - Bus drivers on strike - February 28, 2017

Trade unions NBRU (National Bus and Rail Union) and SIPTU have announced that they will commence an all-out strike at Bus Éireann, after management announced cost-cutting measures will be imposed. The company has done this without going back to the Workplace Relations Commission. Bus Éireann management has told staff that the company has no option but to implement changes to work practices from 6 March that will result in ‘immediate cost savings’. They have also warned that there will be redundancies and impact on pay - but says the moves are necessary to save the company.
