Ireland - Public transport branches still discuss pay demand - January 01, 2017

Observers expect a modification of the pay demands at the Irish Rail after Dublin Bus workers sealed pay deals in the Labour Court. Dublin Bus drivers and staff voted in October to accept a pay deal and cleared the way for a pay increase of 11.6% over 15 months. There is speculation that Irish Rail workers may feel more pressure to lower their initial claim - which is as high as 25% - because it is part of the CIE family. However, they haven't gone before the Workplace Relations Commission yet. Bus Éireann trade unions already almost halved their claim for a 21% pay increase for the troubled semi-state company's 2,600 workers.
