Bus drivers vote overwhelmingly for industrial action

Commuters have been told to brace themselves for a bus strike.

Drivers at Dublin Bus and Bus Éireann have just voted by more than 90% in favour of industrial action.

The ballot follows the breakdown of LRC talks over plans to privatise one-in-ten bus services.

No date has been decided yet for the protest, but Siptu, which is representing workers, says shop stewards from both companies will meet on Monday to discuss how to proceed.
