Bus Eireann strike postponed to facilitate further talks

The Transport Minister, Shane Ross, has welcomed the decision by unions at Bus Eireann to suspend all-out strike action from this Monday - to allow for talks at the Workplace Relations Commission.

In a statement, Bus Eireann says to facilitate meaningful discussions with unions, it will defer the implementation of payroll changes to staff - which were due to commence on Monday.

The NBRU says the strike action has been suspended to coincide with the decision of Bus Eireann not to implement the measures.
