LUAS DRIVERS ARE to serve notice of industrial action over a dispute concerning conditions.

The drivers, who are members of the trade union Siptu, yesterday balloted for industrial action in the hopes of securing more favourable working conditions. They will later serve operator Veolia Transdev Ireland with their three week’s notice, RTÉ reports.

The workers are protesting over rostering and also the company’s decision to let staff go after they finish up 12 month contracts.

The drivers rejected a Labour Court recommendation a number of weeks ago, reports the Irish Times.
