Greyhound trucks 'blocked' by protesters as court date looms

The move comes ahead of the company returning to court on Thursday over an injunction.


PROTESTERS “BLOCKED” GREYHOUND trucks in Cabra and Tallaght today.

The company said that four to five protesters were involved at each location, and that they dispersed after gardaí arrived.

Collections were held up “for a while” but will be completed, said the spokesperson.

A photograph sent to TheJournal.ie showed three protesters by a truck in Cabra, holding signs.

Last week, South Dublin County Councillor Gino Kenny was the subject of a High Court injunction which ordered him to stop blockading lorries at the Greyhound Recycling plant in Clondalkin.

Kenny said that he would not be observing the injunction.

The court order had been requested by the waste management company as part of a series of injunctions against SIPTU and other individuals.

The rest of the injunctions will be heard this Thursday.

They are in relation to preventing people from obstructing trucks and “threatening contract and agency crews”, said the Greyhound spokesperson.

Greyhound said it is calling on the striking workers to use the arbitration services of the state.
