The proposed strike action by workers at Bus Eireann has been postponed.

It's been confirmed that unions representing the workers at the company and management have agreed to fresh talks at the Workplace Relations Commission.

Bus Eireann released a statement:

“The financial situation at Bus Éireann remains critical, with the company facing insolvency by May.

To facilitate meaningful discussions with unions, Bus Éireann management have today accepted a new invitation by the WRC to seek a solution.

We will therefore defer the implementation of changes announced in our recent letter to staff, due to commence on Monday 6th March, while talks continue.”

Meanwhile SIPTU Organiser, Willie Noone, said: “It has always been apparent that the expertise of the WRC will be required to deal with the serious and complex issues in this dispute.

"In deference to a request by the WRC the scheduled strike action by SIPTU members in Bus Éireann, which was due to commence on Monday, has been suspended.

 "SIPTU representatives will continue to play their part in trying to avert a national public transport dispute but we rely on the management of Bus Éireann making genuine efforts to reach a resolution.”
