Dublin Bus workers to be balloted on new pay deal

Dublin Bus workers to be balloted on new pay deal

Workers at Dublin Bus are to be balloted next week on whether to accept a pay deal reached at the WRC after marathon talks yesterday.

Drivers will get an 11.25% pay rise over the next three years – that is below their initial demand of 15%.

Unions have agreed to suspend planned strikes to allow the vote take place. 

It comes as around half of employment law professionals say they are dissatisfied with how the Workplace Relations Commission handles disputes. 

Dr. Brian Barry is from the Employment Law Association of Ireland: “It is very difficult to advise a user of the service, how the adjudicators will run if different adjudicators run hearings in different ways.

“It is very difficult to prepare for and it is unfair to both employees and employers, to not know how an adjudication hearing will operate.”
