Open Thread: How is the Bus Éireann strike affecting you?
Tell us in the comments.

BUS ÉIREANN WORKERS are six days into their strike – meaning that there have been no services from them across the country for almost a week.

Today, they held a protest outside Dáil Éireann, where one union representative said that ‘this dispute is only starting and we are here to win’.

In a nutshell, the strike is because workers refuse to accept cost-cutting measures put forward by the company, which says it is in a dire financial situation. The Transport Minister Shane Ross has consistently rejected calls for him to personally intervene in the dispute.

But beyond the specifics of why the dispute is happening is the knock-on effect it is having on commuters – regardless of their stance on the strike.

That’s why we want to know: How is the Bus Éireann strike affecting you?

Let us know in the comments.
