Bus Éireann welcomes the outcome of the union’s ballot today – 22 May 2017

Bus Éireann welcomes the result of today’s ballot by Trade Unions in relation to accepting the recommendations of the Labour Court. This endorsement significantly enhances the prospects for the company and all of the customers and staff who rely on our services throughout the country. 

We now look forward to proactively engaging with our staff to implement the Labour Court recommendation. This will help us address the critical financial position and achieve significant and necessary improvements in efficiencies. Acceptance of this recommendation now also provides a basis to enable us to develop a viable business plan, which can be presented to our Board for approval who are due to meet on 29 May. 

Bus Éireann would like to recognise the significant contribution and input from the trade unions during this process and also to thank the Workplace Relations Commission and Labour Court for facilitating this agreement.
