Transdev says it has had "positive" talks with Luas workers - but not drivers

Talks with drivers have yet to be scheduled.


LUAS OPERATOR TRANSDEV says they have had “positive” talks with three of the four worker grades represented by Siptu.

However, talks with drivers have yet to be scheduled.

Yesterday trade union Siptu said it had agreed to cancel the 48-hour work stoppage planned for this weekend to facilitate talks.

A statement from Transdev says:

“We had a positive engagement with 3 of the 4 Grades represented by SIPTU today ( Revenue Protection Officers, Revenue Protection Supervisors and Traffic Supervisors ) and further meetings are planned over the next 24 – 48 hours.

The Company has no further comment to make while these talks are ongoing.”

In relation to drivers, both parties are working to agree a mutually convenient date and expect to finalise that by close of business today.

The dispute has run for over two months, with drivers striking across February and Easter weekend.

Further work stoppages are still planned for 28 April, 4 May, 13 May, 20 May, 26 May and 27 May.
