Ireland - Bus drivers’ strike continues - March 31, 2017

The strike at Bus Éireann, continues at the end of March 2017 and it could escalate significantly the week after, involving Dublin Bus and Iarnród Éireann. Workers at both those companies are to be balloted on taking industrial action in sympathy with and in support of Bus Éireann workers. SIPTU representatives from the three companies are supporting the ongoing strike - which is affecting around 110,000 Bus Éireann customers. Meanwhile, Bus Éireann managers are meeting to consider plans that could involve up to 300 job losses under a voluntary redundancy scheme. Bus Éireann services, with the exception of school transportation, came to a standstill in the dispute, which follows management plans to introduce cost-saving measures without agreement.
