Bus Éireann Statement

Bus Éireann regrets the ongoing disruption to the travelling public caused by the unions’ strike action.

Escalation of this action in an illegal manner will not resolve the matter, and as a company, we can only engage on the basis of good faith.

Trust must be restored in order for dialogue between both parties to resume.

The company remain available for time-limited talks on efficiencies and changes to work practices.

It is critical - for both the solvency of the business and to secure a viable future - that these changes are implemented.

Management and the board want to see a resolution, but are responsible for ensuring that the business can survive.
