Siptu to vote on strike action after Irish Rail proposal rejected

Strike action could be on the cards at Irish Rail, after Siptu workers voted to reject Labour Court recommendations on a cost-saving plan.

The company wants to change workers' terms and conditions in a bid to save €8.7m this year.

Siptu balloted its staff on the proposals - which they rejected by 51% to 49%.

The union says it will now meet with management to discuss the situation and ballot its members on strike and industrial action.
