FRESH PROPOSALS WERE tabled at the Labour Relations Commission today as attempts to end the 12 week long Greyhound dispute reach a new phase

Greyhound says that the new terms include a reduction of the 35% pay cut imposed on the workers as well as a redundancy package for workers who wish to leave the firm.

The company did not specify the exact nature of the pay cut reduction.

Workers at the firm say that they were locked out of the jobs when they refused to accept the 35% cut. The company denies this and also says the cut would still leave the workers above the industry average

Greyhound yesterday postponed High Court enforcement orders against workers they accused of being in breach on an injunction which sought to stop the blocking of Greyhound trucks at their Clondalkin facility.

Talks at the LRC ended without agreement on Wednesday but started again today with the new proposals the result of that resumption.

Siptu members at Greyhound will be required to vote on the new proposals next week.
