SIPTU members in Bus Éireann have voted by a margin of almost nine to one to reject proposals presented by the Labour Relations Commission (LRC) to change the terms and conditions of their employment.
SIPTU Sector Organiser, Willie Noone, said: “SIPTU members at Bus Éireann have decided to overwhelmingly reject these proposals, with 89% of those balloted voting against their acceptance.”
The ballot result was announced this morning (Thursday, 7th March) following a count in Liberty Hall, Dublin.
Willie Noone added: “Union representatives are available to recommence talks with management with the aim of preparing a new set of proposals which will be more acceptable to workers. These talks would include reference to the new propositions for change throughout the public service which are contained in the recently published LRC proposals for a public service agreement.”
