SIPTU representatives have this afternoon (Friday, 3rd March) accepted an invitation to talks on Monday (6th March) at the Workplace Relations Commission (WRC) aimed at resolving the dispute with the management of Bus Éireann. SIPTU Sector 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.”
