The Bus Éireann dispute to end after three weeks of strike action


Bus Éireann services could be back on the roads this weekend. 

The Labour Court said that it will issue a recommendation in the hopes of resolving the ongoing Bus Éireann strike by lunchtime today. 

It is hoped that once this recommendation is heard, the strike will be called off.

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

A ballot between Dublin Bus drivers was taken this week and saw a 78 per cent vote in favour of striking alongside Bus Éireann.

The organisation must give seven days notice of strike action, by which time the Bus Éireann issue may be rectified.
