Luas Strikes Are Set To Take Place Again On St Patrick's Day

As the dispute between Luas workers and its operating company Transdev continues, strikes have been called for this Thursday 18 and Friday 19, as well as March 8 and St Patrick's Day.

Having already taken industrial action with work-to-rule and last week's 48-hour strike that disrupted 90,000 commuters a day, aggrieved light rail employees would disrupt one of the most profitable days of the year for Dublin tourism.

According to, Transdev Managing Director Gerry Madden said today,

I am shocked and disappointed to learn that Luas employees plan on stopping the service not just this week, Thursday and Friday, February 18 and 19, on Tuesday March 8 and St Patrick’s Day March 17 2016. All in pursuance of their pay claims.

Luas workers are seeking increases in pay between 8 and 53%.
