Strike action at the national ambulance service due for next Wednesday has been called off following talks.
Siptu has been in dispute with management over what it claims was its failure to implement Labour Court recommendations on pay and compensation.
Meanwhile, drivers at Dublin Bus who are part of the national Bus and Rail Union have voted in favour of industrial action by a margin of 96%.
The ballot came after drivers rejected a pay rise recommendation of just over 8% put forward by the Labour Court. The NBRU is lloking for a pay offer closer to what was offered the Luas drivers — who secured pay increases of around 18% over four years.
Siptu is to vote on the Labour Court offer next week.
Dublin Bus said that it notes the result of the ballot but was waiting for the results of the ballots of the other trade unions next week before considering the outcome in full.
