BREAKING: Dublin Bus Strike Called Off Amid Talks Over Pay Dispute


Great news for commuters this evening, with confirmation that the planned Dublin Bus strike has been called off.

Service had been due to be suspended over the next two days as a result of the ongoing pay dispute between bus drivers and Dublin Bus management.

However, Newstalk is reporting that the NBRU has now confirmed that industrial action will be put on hold while talks between the parties continue.

“In agreeing to suspend our member’s industrial action, we are placing our trust in the WRC and its assessment, following its separate exploratory discussions with Dublin Bus, that significant progress can be achieved over the next number of days in order to find a resolution to this dispute,” said General Secretary Dermot O’Leary.
