Irish Rail SIPTU and NBRU staff accept pay deal

Irish Rail staff with SIPTU and the NBRU have accepted a pay deal recommended by the Labour Court.

It allows for a 7.5 percent pay hike for workers over 3 years.

The Labour Court intervened following a series of 24 hour rail strikes.

In a statement the NBRU says it will now concentrate on ensuring that members in Bus Eireann also receive a pay award.
