Dublin Bus strike may return as SIPTU drivers reject latest deal

Both SIPTU and NBRU drivers have voted overwhelmingly to reject the latest proposals aimed at saving the company €11.7m.
They were discussed at the Labour Court last week following a three-day strike over the Bank Holiday weekend.
SIPTU organiser Willie Noone said that while his members don't want another strike, they have "had enough."
"They can't afford a strike, that's why they're taking such a stand in relation to these cost-cutting measures.
"They cannot afford any more cuts … but if the company comes along and tries to force through these changes, there will be a strike."
SIPTU drivers rejected the proposals, and NBRU drivers voted against the deal with a 67% majority.
