A Luas driver has kept his job following a row over refusing to drive a tram reaching its last stop a minute before the end of his shift.
The case has been heard at the Workplace Relations Commission.
Last November his tram was due to finish its journey at the Red Cow depot at a minute before midnight.
The driver told an adjudicator he feared a slight delay on the tram's route would mean he would over-run his shift.
He was worried he'd then be expected to take it to Tallaght, and go through the process of bedding it down for the night.
Transdev said the refusal to take the tram on its round trip into the city centre and back out to the Red Cow constituted gross misconduct, and it had acted fairly by giving him a letter of warning.
Reps acting for the driver said his unblemished record with the company dating back to 2004 should be considered.
The WRC said Transdev acted within its rights but ruled he should not face a gross misconduct charge which could have resulted in him losing his job.
