Iarnród Éireann Update

17 February 2011

The various trade unions at Iarnród Éireann were called to a meeting facilitated by the Labour Relations Commission on the current financial situation of the organisation with a view to reaching an agreement on a cost recovery plan

The various trade unions at Iarnród Éireann were called to a meeting facilitated by the Labour Relations Commission on the current financial situation of the organisation with a view to reaching an agreement on a cost recovery plan.

Management indicated that the organisation faced difficult times due to the current economic climate. Iarnród Éireann raised proposals around such items as pay, increments, subsistence allowances, self cert days, surplus staff and overtime.

The TSSA clearly stated that we would strongly resist any attempt to impose pay cuts. TSSA as a union also stressed we would only engage in a process that sort to protect the job security and terms and conditions of our members.

As no agreement could be reached at this meeting Iarnród Éireann proposed writing to us outlining their position for any further future talks to be held via the Labour Relations Commission.

For your information attached is a copy of the letter received from Iarnród Éireann outlining their position.

Patrick McCusker: Acting Senior Irish Organiser
