Trade union members in Irish Rail will vote on a Labour Court recommendation aimed at resolving the dispute at the public transport company. The decision to ballot workers was taken at a meeting of representatives of the Irish Rail Trade Union Group in Liberty Hall, Dublin, this evening (Friday, 10th November). A decision was also taken to suspend all planned industrial action by Irish Rail workers until the ballot is concluded. The proposals include annual pay increases of 2.5% for three years. These will come into effect on 1st December, 2017, 1st December 2018 and 1st December 2019. A voucher to the value of €500 will also be provided to workers in December 2017. The Irish Rail Trade Union Group includes representatives of SIPTU, NBRU, TEEU, Unite and TSSA.
