NBRU ACCUSE BUS ÉIREANN MANAGEMENT OF CORPORATE AMNESIA FOLLOWING BREAKDOWN OF WRC DISCUSSIONS

General Secretary Dermot O’Leary said:

“Bus .Éireann stand accused of having had a sudden attack of corporate amnesia in relation to how take-home pay has historically been constructed at the Company, it is a bit rich of the new management team to enter the arena at the 11th hour and seek, in one fell swoop to address a crisis that has been over two years in gestation. The fact of the matter is that all of the agreements that cover the take home pay of its own staff have been previously agreed through the tried and trusted collective bargaining mechanisms, between the representative Trade Unions and the management, some of which are now attempting to rewrite history.”

Mr O’Leary went on to say:

“the Trade Unions entered the WRC process fully committed to engage on an efficiency based agenda, which would potentially generate significant savings towards addressing the Expressway crisis, the notion that an immediate cut to some overtime earnings would suddenly address the Government Policy induced crisis, is frankly incredulous, and Bus Éireann stand indicted of displaying a cavalier attitude towards its responsibilities to those that rely on its services and its own staff.”
