Dublin Bus Industrial Action

30 August 2016

TSSA has given formal notification to Dublin Bus our intention to take a series of 48 hour stoppages on the following dates:


Thursday 8 September 2016 & Friday 9 September 2016

Thursday 15 September 2016 & Friday 16 September 2016

Friday 23 September 2016 & Saturday 24 September 2016

All the other trade unions in Dublin Bus will also give notification for action on the same dates.

TSSA after engagement with our fellow Trade Unionists believe that a strong coordinated response is required if we are to have any success in getting an improved pay offer from the company.

The united front from the Trade Unions is a reflection of the common desire to achieve a fair pay outcome.

As a Trade Union we are always prepared to engage in constructive dialogue with the company directly or via a third party. We are therefore disappointed that since TSSA members voted to reject the labour court recommendations we have had no approach to avoid this dispute escalating.

We believe the onus is now on the company management and the Department of Transport to support positive engagement with the Trade Unions, and recognise that after 8 years of no pay rise, increased workloads and enduring cost cutting measures that an improved pay offer is more than warranted.
