Bus Eireann strike action inevitable says SIPTU

Transport Minister Shane Ross has called on all sides in the Bus Eireann dispute to take time to reflect on the issues at hand.

It follows the collapse of yesterday’s talks at the Workplace Relations Commission – which the Minister has described as a ‘disappointing’ development.

Later this morning the CEO of the National Transport Authority will brief the Government’s joint transport committee on the current financial situation at Bus Eireann.

Speaking to Ocean FM SIPTU’s Willie Noone said strike action affecting services in Sligo, Leitrim and Donegal now looks inevitable if the company push ahead with €12 million euro in payroll cuts.
