Unions and management at Bus Éireann are meeting today exactly a year after they signed a deal at the Labour Court to end strike action by drivers.

The agreement included a review after 12 months.

Workers are expected to ask for a pay rise at today's talks.

But bosses will not sanction increases while the firm is still on what they are calling a 'fragile financial footing'.
