IRISH RAIL PAY TALKS BREAKDOWN

NBRU Members furious at Irish Rail’s contemptuous attitude towards its staff in refusing to offer a meaningful ‘no strings attached’ pay rise after a decade long pay freeze

General Secretary Dermot O’Leary said:

“After a decade long pay hiatus, the expectation of a long overdue pay rise for Irish Rail staff has not materialised. Our members have looked at colleagues in the Public Transport Sector enjoying pay increases of up to 3.75%, while Irish Rail is thumbing its nose at its own Staff by making a pitiful offer, at a time when passenger numbers and revenue at Irish Rail are at a historical high, is contemptuous to say the least. Sadly the senior Management at the State Company have little or no regard for their workers.”

Mr O’Leary went on to say:

“The patience of a beleaguered workforce has run out after today’s charades at the WRC, the spectacle of highly paid senior managers being effectively gagged and restricted to offering ‘strings attached’ crumbs to its staff, including the disgraceful caveat of seeking union acquiescence to the closure of rail lines in order to fund a pay rise, has now brought frustration levels to the stage whereby the NBRU is left with no choice but to immediately move to ballot all its members for industrial action up to and including all-out strike, resulting in widespread travel chaos for commuters in the next number of weeks.”
