Dublin Bus members reject Court pay offer

1 August 2016

The threat of disruption at Dublin Bus grew today when all three union agreed to meet next week to co-ordinate industrial action over a rejected 8.25% pay recommendation from the Labour Court.

The unions, NBRU, Siptu and the TSSA are now balloting their members on industrial action following the overwhelming rejection of the three year offer.

Manuel Cortes, leader of the TSSA, Transport Salaried Staffs Association, representing clerical and supervisory staff, said:

"Our members are unhappy with details of the offer, especially on pensions, and we will have to see what all three unions can now do together to secure improvements from management.

"No one wants to see disruption to the travelling public and hopefully we can avoid that if management sit down with us to reach a fair and honourable deal. But we cannot rule out industrial action at this stage."

The TSSA ballot begins today (August 1) and closes next Wednesday, August 10.
