Talks on the dispute in Irish Rail, where industrial action is due to take commence on Friday 23rd October, will resume at 11.30 a.m. this morning.
SIPTU Organiser, Paul Cullen said that despite the marathon all night discussions Irish Rail management has not adequately addressed the issue of past productivity delivered by union members.
“We are furious at the way management has behaved in these negotiations . The company representatives have engaged in what can only be described as satellite negotiations in these talks and appear to have been restrained from reaching any meaningful solution . If the discussions continue along these lines it seems inevitable that industrial action will proceed on Friday,” Paul Cullen said.
