Bus Eireann strike latest - March 30th

30 March 2017

TSSA responds to RTE reports this morning that Transport Minister Shane Ross is to be briefed on Bus Eireann's business plan.

TSSA General Secretary, Manuel Cortes said:

"If the RTE reports are correct, I welcome Ross's change of heart and am pleased to hear that Ireland's Transport Minister is finally taking an interest in the troubles at Bus Eireann. What a pity it's taken him so long to show up. But now we have his interest and he's said to be scheduled to meet Bus Eireann bosses today, perhaps he'll remind them to enact any plan they will need to come back to the negotiating table. We are available and have been waiting for the call from them since they walked away from talks at the Workplace Relations Committee over two weeks ago and have refused our offers to come back and talk ever since."
