TSSA in Ireland

TSSA has had members in Ireland since the late 1890s. Our first branch was formed in Belfast in November 1904. Today we represent members in Córas Iompair Éireann, Translink, buses, ferries and travel across the island. 

We represent salaried staff in many different undertakings, and TSSA's affairs are managed by an Irish Committee, elected by the entire membership in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland.
