A strategy for an all-out strike at Dublin Bus cannot be decided until all the unions have completed their ballots.
That is according to SIPTU who are due to start balloting its members at the company on tomorrow.
It is after the NBRU said yesterday that it had agreed in principle to an all-out strike and would seek to meet with other unions to present a united front.
SIPTU represents seven worker grades at Dublin Bus and will not know the full results of the ballot until early next week.
Divisional organiser Owen Reidy has said meeting with other unions before then is premature: “To be fair to the NBRU, they have had their ballot and they have said it is quite likely that industrial action will take place.
“I wouldn't disagree with that, but I think it is important that we respect the democratic process in our own union, and we engage with our members and we ballot them and when we have counted those votes across the seven grades, those representatives will sit down and analyse the results and we will take it from there.”
