Breaking: Dublin Bus Have Voted To Strike ‘In Solidarity’ With Bus Eireann
Looks like more strike action could be on the way.
Dublin Bus have voted overwhelmingly to strike ‘in solidarity’ with Bus Eireann workers, with 78% of members in the SIPTU union voting in favour of industrial action.
If a strike were to take place the union are required to give seven days notice before commencing industrial action.
Speaking to the Journal.ie this afternoon, TD Brid Smith described the decision as “a great show of solidarity among workers.”
Not surprisingly, people on Twitter are pretty p*ssed off about the decision.

Dublin Bus drivers joining the strike. Expect it all to be sorted within hours. Once the capital is in trouble they won’t be long at it.
