Irish Rail workers are set to strike for 5 days from next month

Irish Rail workers are set to strike for 5 days from next month in a row with management over pay.

There will be 24 hour stoppages on the 1st, 7th, 14th and 23rd of November and the 8th of December. Union members at Iarnrod Eireann say they will conduct reviews on an ongoing basis and may decide to escalate the action.

Tens of thousand of commuters will be disrupted as a result of the strikes.
