Good News – It Looks Like Dublin Bus Strikes Have Been Suspended For The Week
Let's hope this is the end of it all for a good while...
Good news for commuters who've been suffering during the Dublin Bus strikes – all strikes have been called off.
According to Independent.ie, strikes are expected to be suspended for the next week.
The next strike was scheduled for Saturday, which would coincide with the All-Ireland final replay between Dublin and Mayo, and would cause even more chaos.
Dublin Bus strikes expected to be suspended. Deal reached, have to ballot unions on it again. Likely more than 8.25% rise #DublinBus— Sean Defoe (@SeanDefoe) September 29, 2016
A total increase of 11.25% in the period for Dublin Bus staff. Workers had wanted a 15% increase. Management had offered 8.25%.— Luke Byrne (@Lukezo) September 29, 2016
The suspension is following the outcome of a ballot on proposals hammered out by management and unions, and now union members are expected to be balloted all over again.
