Video: Reaction on the street to the Dublin Bus strike
The strike will not continue into a fourth day but it has already caused inconvenience to tourists, commuters and locals.

THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE across the capital will be spared disruption tomorrow as the bus strike has been called off.

SIPTU and National Bus and Rail Workers Union (NBRU) employees of the company had taken to the picket line last Sunday over changes to overtime and working conditions.

Earlier today, went to Dublin Bus headquarters on O’Connell Street to ask the public how the strike was affecting them, and to see what workers on the picket line had to say.


Bill McCamley, SIPTU Workers Director with Dublin Bus, had told that he hoped there would be an intervention so that the strike can be ended “as quickly as possible”, although he is concerned about a decision being made prematurely.

That came about with the Labour Court issuing an invitation this afternoon for talks between unions and Dublin Bus.
