SIPTU representatives of Dublin Bus workers welcomed an invitation from the Workplace Relations Commission (WRC) on Sunday (25th September) to attend exploratory discussions on a way to find an acceptable resolution of the industrial dispute at the company.
SIPTU Transport Division Organiser, Owen Reidy, said: “We understand that the purpose of this initial meeting is to see whether there is the basis for a meaningful negotiation between the parties. Any decision as to whether the pending strike action by our members on Tuesday and Wednesday of this week goes ahead, or is cancelled, will be made by the union committee based on the progress, or otherwise, at tomorrow's initial meeting.”
SIPTU and other unions at Dublin Bus will attend the talks with Dublin Bus management at the invitation of the WRC at 2.00 p.m. on Monday (26th September).
