Dublin clampers to vote on strike action, say no agreement made on clamp targets

Dublin City Council has reportedly set a target of 60,000 vehicles clamped a year.

DUBLIN COULD BE set for parking chaos as workers at Dublin Street Parking Services (DSPS) are to vote on potential strike action.

SIPTU members at DSPS are to meet on Monday and will hold a secret ballot on whether or not to take industrial action over a 2.5 per cent pay increase they say has been due since 2011.

They say that there has been a “refusal to honour” the increase on behalf of management which has led to the current situation.

The decision to weigh up strike action comes after it was reported that Dublin City Council had set DSPS a target of 60,000 car clampings a year.

Staff are also understood to have been offered a bonus of €2,000 if this clamping target is met.

In a statement announcing the ballot, SIPTU says that their members have reached no agreement with the company in relation to the introduction of clamping targets.
