Irish Rail – Wage Reductions/Strike Action

Posted in Uncategorized

According to Anne Marie Walsh of the Irish Independent it appears that strike action may be looming within Irish Rail.

In the last few months price fares have risen. National Bus and Railworks Union representing 550 staff are to vote against a recommendation (this would impact a wage reduction which ranges from 1.7% to 6.1% (3.1% being for higher wages)) to the Labour Court on Wednesday

 Irish Rail Chief Executive (David Franks) has urged staff members to accept the pay cuts and talks as it could be “end of the road”.

 This will affect more than 10,000 passengers a day if an “all out” strike goes ahead.
