Unions at Bus Eireann accuse the company of trying to collapse today’s talks

Unions at Bus Eireann are accusing the company of trying to collapse today’s talks at the Workplace Relations Commission.

It follows the circulation of what the unions are calling a ‘provocative’ document – to members of staff.

Bus Eireann workers were due to walk off the job today – but the action was postponed to allow for today’s negotiations.

But SIPTU Sector Organiser, Willie Noone, is warning that the process is already in danger.


Meanwhile Paddy Gollogly is a former Bus Éireann Inspector at the Monaghan bus station depot, and spent 44 years working with the company.

He’s siding with the unions on the issue.

He says while the talks to avert an all-out strike at Bus Éireann continue, there are important bodies missing from the table.
