It comes as Bus workers are staging a lunchtime protest today to coincide with Minister Shane Ross’s appearance at the Oireachtas Transport Committee.
The Transport Minister is facing renewed pressure over Bus Éireann, amid fears the strike could spread to Irish Rail and Dublin Bus.
Workers from across the transport sector are staging a lunchtime protest over the Bus Éireann dispute to coincide with Minister Shane Ross’s appearance at the Oireachtas Transport Committee.
Sinn Féin’s Imelda Munster says it’s time the Minister recognised there’s a crisis facing the country.
An executive member of the National Bus and Rail Workers Union, Killalloe Councillor Tony O’Brien says he understands that a sympathy strike by rail workers and those at Dublin Bus won’t go ahead.
The bus strike is now in its sixth day and Councillor O’Brien believes the public are sympathetic towards the cause, saying the issue has highlighted serious concerns about workers rights.
