NBRU Press Release on possible Labour Court interventionNBRU Press Release in Response to Bus Eireann Statement on Labour Court Intervention Jan 24th


Response to Bus Éireann Statement on seeking possible Labour Court intervention.

General Secretary Dermot O’Leary said:

“it would appear that Bus Éireann, not satisfied with attempting to ride roughshod over its own staff’s terms and conditions are now attempting to play footloose and fancy free with the Industrial Relations institutions of the State, notwithstanding the fact that this contrived dispute is not one associated with so-called industrial relations norms, and accordingly cannot be resolved without the assistance of all stakeholders, the notion that a Semi-State Company would risk holding the Labour Court to ridicule for political expediency is nothing short of extraordinary”

Mr O’Leary went on to say:

“for Bus Éireann to call for leadership from all sides to ensure meaningful discussions can commence is as pitiful as it is insulting, given that the role the ‘New Management’ have performed to-date is to provide cover for their paymasters at both Group and Department Level. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the NBRU has this afternoon accepted an invitation from the Labour Court to meet with the principals on all sides in order, we believe to provide some clarity on some of the conjecture surrounding the status of this dispute”
