Strike Dates Announced for Córas Iompair Éireann

28 March 2019

TSSA has written to Córas Iompair Éireann (CIE) this week (Monday) to notify the company of their intention to strike during April and May.

TSSA members working in CIE will be on strike on Friday 12th April, Thursday 18thApril (Maundy Thursday) and Friday 3rd May 2019.

The union has been in dispute with CIE since the company refused to accept a Labour Court recommendation over pay. Members of the TSSA voted by 97% in favour of strike action in March but the company has refused to budge.

Manuel Cortes, TSSA General Secretary, said, “CIE’s arrogant refusal to accept the recommendation of the Labour Court is breathtaking and has placed them on a collision course with our union.

“Our members are white collar and managerial workers, not people who would normally go out on strike. But they were outraged that their employer would not accept the Labour Court’s recommendation.

“Enough is enough. If CIE won’t see sense then we’ll see them on the picket line!”

Notes to desks
The Labour Court recommendation was a 2.5% payrise backdated to 1st December 2018 and a further 2.5% payrise from 1st December 2019, with a further €500 Euros in vouchers.
