SIPTU Reject Labour Court Recommendations On Iarnród Éireann Cuts

SIPTU is to ballot its members over possible strike action at Iarnród Éireann, following the unions rejection of a Labour Court proposed cost reduction plan.

The union's 1,700 members voted to reject the Labour Court recommendation, which included a range of pay cuts, by 51% to 49%.

Members will now be balloted on strike and industrial action that will be undertaken if management attempts to implement changes to workers' terms and conditions of employment without agreement.
