Dublin Bus Drivers return to Work

Drivers at Dublin Bus who have been on unofficial strike since Sunday have decided to return to work.

Eugene McDonagh, a member of the National Bus & Rail Union, told the media that a reduced service would operate for the remainder of the day, and a full schedule will operate again from tomorrow.

Earlier today Dublin Bus rejected a settlement proposal from drivers engaged in the unofficial strike at its Harristown depot (photo).

The dispute began on Sunday after a driver from the Harristown bus depot was suspended when he refused to work a new schedule. (see my entry of yesterday)
It is understood that the company has now lifted the suspension of this driver.

Dublin Bus declared that yesterday's strike action disrupted the movement of up to 150,000 passengers.
