Iarnrod Eireann - Notice of Industrial Action Ballot

4 October 2017

As pay talks have broken down and under the instructions of the TSSA Irish Committee we will ballot all TSSA members in Iarnrod Eireann for both strike action and industrial action short of strike action.

 The TSSA will be recommending that members vote YES to both ballots


We maintain that members deserve a flat percentage pay increase. This is only fair and reasonable when considering your near decade pay freeze and also recognising the sacrifices you have made and the contributions you have made to ensure the safe and efficient running train service during the past difficult years.  


It is disappointing that the company did not make a genuine and credible pay offer. A derisory pay offer of 1.5% that was also conditional on the TSSA accepting such things as outsourcing of work, forced redeployment, an increment freeze, closing of booking offices, line closures and a reduction in contracted hours has forced us to balloting members.


We will conduct a postal ballot of all members. Ballots will be posted to members over the coming days, ballot will conclude on Friday 20 October 2017.
