Passengers stalled as train strike takes hold

There are delays expected on DART and Iarnród Éireann services as this morning’s train strike came into effect earlier.

The most significant news from this morning’s strike is that there will be no services for the Docklands with a bus service operating from M3 Parkway and Clonsilla.

The strike took place between 6 and 9 am this morning after a dispute between Irish Rail and the two major unions for train drivers, SIPTU and the National Bus and Railworkers’ Union (NBRU), over bonuses for previous years went unresolved.

The parties were still in discussions late last night to avert strike action. This is not the first expected strike as one is also being scheduled for two weeks time on November 6th.
