SIPTU Dublin Bus drivers are voting at depots across the city on Labour Court proposals for a company cost savings plan.
The ballot began on Thursday, 15th August, and will conclude today (Friday 16th August). The ballot result will be announced this evening following a count in Liberty Hall, Dublin.
The proposals were published following over night talks last week between union representatives and the management of Dublin Bus.
SIPTU Organiser, John Murphy, said: “These proposals clear up a number of ambiguities concerning changes to work practices which had been evident in the previous Labour Court proposals. The company has also provided clear commitments as to when workers terms and conditions will revert to normal and assurances that it will seek no further cuts during the period of this proposed deal.”
