Dublin clampers vote in favour of industrial action over pay dispute

Dublin Street Parking Services voted in a secret ballot this afternoon on possible strike action.


DUBLIN STREET PARKING SERVICES (DSPS) voted overwhelmingly for industrial action, “up to and including strike action” in a ballot this afternoon.

SIPTU said its members are seeking a 2.5 per cent pay increase which they say has been due since 2011.

SIPTU Organiser, Teresa Hannick, said:

The union will decide over the coming days the appropriate action to take in pursuit of our members’ pay claim.

The decision on possible strike action comes after it was reported that Dublin City Council had set DSPS a target of 60,000 car clampings a year, but SIPTU members in the company said they have reached no agreement in relation to the introduction of clamping targets.

A set of proposals relating to clamping targets was rejected by SIPTU members last year.

They previously stated that the current dispute with the company relates only to its refusal to honour the outstanding pay increase.
