DSPS Union Members Back Industrial Action

Union members at Dublin Street Parking Services (DSPS) have voted in favour of industrial action.

What action the SIPTU members will take has not been decided but it is understood that it includes an all-out strike.

The dispute surrounds a 2.5% pay increase, which the union claims has been due since November 2011 but that DSPS management has refused to honour.

The DSPS carry out parking enforcement on behalf of Dublin City Council.
