UPDATE: Dublin Bus Drivers Set To Strike For Additional 13 Days In September and October
Looks like there's no end in sight...
It's only getting worse people. Earlier, we reported that Dublin Bus were planning to continue their strike with 10 days of industrial action in October.
In a statement released this afternoon, SIPTU said:
"The stoppages will take place on Tuesday 27th and Wednesday 28th, September. These are in addition to the 48-hour work stoppage already scheduled for next week (Friday 23rd and Saturday 24th September). In October, the work stoppages will take place on Saturday 1st, Wednesday 5th, Friday 7th, Monday 10th, Wednesday 12th, Friday 14th, Tuesday 18th, Wednesday 19th, Monday 24th, Wednesday 26thand Saturday 29th."
Hundreds of thousands of commuters have been plunged into chaos today and it looks like the Dublin Bus strike is set to run and run.
The ongoing industrial action is costing more than €600,000 a day and trade unions have criticised the silence of Minister for Transport Shane Ross, Dublin Bus management and the Department of Transport on the dispute.
