Friday's wildcat bus strike action has made Dubliners sit up and notice the dispute , but the Transport Minister is still in denial. That's according to People Before Profit.
The party has been hearing from Bus Eireann workers at its annual conference in the capital.
Fridays action shut down some Dart and Dublin Bus services too and didn't have union approval, but TD Brid Smith says it's come to that because of Shane Ross and his refusal to get involved.
"It isn't just a normal dispute," she said. "Because it's a public service funded by the government it is the business of Shane Ross as Transport Minister." Deputy Smith also said it "beggars belief" the Minister hasn't done something by now.
But Michael O'Leary disagrees. The Ryanair CEO has weighed in on the issue, saying he thinks the Minister is doing the right thing staying out of the row.
Mr O'Leary said "where you have public sector unions running around trying to suck the government into disputes you have to stay out of it and let managers at Bus Eireann manage it!"
