Bus Eireann workers are calling off a three week strike over cuts - for now. They will "lift pickets with immediate effect" after the Labour Court issued a proposal to end the long-running cost-cutting row.
Staff will go back to work while they consider the detail contained in the proposed cost-saving plan, but could resume action if they're not happy.
That decision means a solidarity strike by Dublin Bus workers is now effectively put on pause.
SIPTU's John Murphy, had said “the majority of SIPTU members in Dublin Bus have voted to take industrial action in support of, and in sympathy with, their colleagues in Bus Éireann."
It's now expected that strike, planned for a week away, will not go ahead if Bus Eireann workers accept the revised cost-saving plan.
However, if Bus Eireann workers read the detail and decide not to accept it, transport users could be faced with fresh strike action from both companies.
Bus Eireann says its "key focus now is on the resumption of normal services as soon as possible." Some services may resume in the regional cities this evening, but the vast majority of services will not be operational until tomorrow morning at the earliest.
The company says details of routes and services will be updated regularly on its website and social media.
