FROM MIDNIGHT, AN immediate, all-out strike Bus Ă‰ireann strike began.
The National Bus and Rail Union (NBRU) said in a statement that all five unions representing workers had met in relation to a letter sent by Bus Ă‰ireann workers detailing cost-cutting measures that were to be implemented immediately.
They decided they had no alternative but to strike.

TheseÂ include job losses, changes to bus routes, cuts in overtime and a range of other measures.
So, today weâ€™re asking you:Â Do you support the strike by Bus Ă‰ireann workers?
