Hands Off Dublin Bus

Saturday 28 March Dublin Sinn Féin held a protest outside Dublin Head Quarters in O'Connell Street.

The NBRU and SIPTU have voted to reject the proposals put forward by the Dublin Bus company. Members of SIPTU and the NBRU were said to be concerned about the implications of taking 120 buses out of the fleet, changes to work practices and job security.

Union sources suggest that the company is likely to implement its original cost saving measures from 29 March, including plans to make 160 newly-recruited drivers redundant.
