Dublin Bus disruption continues for third day

Thousands of commuters are facing more disruption this morning as Dublin Bus drivers engage in a third day of unofficial industrial action.

The action at the Harristown and Clontaft depot has led to the cancellation of services of 29 routes again today.

Some drivers are refusing to work in protest at the introduction of schedule changes as part of the company's cost-cutting plans.

Dublin Bus says the changes were recommended by the Labour Court and approved by the drivers.

It says it will only enter talks on the matter if the striking drivers return to work and operate the new schedules.
