Greyhound union meeting LRC to discuss pay dispute
The union representing 80 workers at the Greyhound waste recycling plant is meeting the Labour Relations Commission this afternoon to discuss an on-going dispute with the company.
SIPTU staff have been picketing outside Greyhound's facility at Clondalkin in Dublin since June 17, over pay cuts.
Representatives of the company are expected to attend separate talks at the LRC in coming days.
SIPTU's Owen Reidy said he hoped today's meeting would formulate a plan for further negotiations.
"We received the invitation yesterday afternoon to attend the LRC today. What I understand is the Labour Relations Commission wants to hear our analysis of the dispute and where we see the solution," he said.
He added he understood that the LRC would also meet company management and then make an assessment as to whether there is the possible basis for talks.
He said of today's meeting: "It's essentially talks about talks but it's a welcome development."
