Majority of Bus Éireann services to resume around the country today


Three weeks after strike action began, Bus Éireann services are set to return to the roads.

 The Labour Court recommended 200 job cuts, with 120 among drivers.

The court also recommended a cut to earnings over €60,000.

National Bus and Rail Union general secretary Dermot O’Leary told the Labour Court that once a recommendation was granted, the pickets would be lifted, according to The Irish Times.

The NBRU is now considering the 17-page document of recommendations. 

The strike has caused chaos for commuters, particularly in rural areas of the country.
