SIPTU members in Dublin Bus have voted in favour of taking industrial action in support of their colleagues currently in dispute in Bus Éireann in a ballot counted in Liberty Hall, Dublin 1, today (Thursday, 13th April).
SIPTU Organiser, John Murphy, said: “The ballot count has been completed and the majority of SIPTU members in Dublin Bus have voted to take industrial action in support of, and in sympathy with, their colleagues in Bus Éireann. Most SIPTU members in Dublin Bus are bus drivers and this grade voted by 67% to 33% in favour of taking industrial action.”
