COMMUTERS WHO USE the Luas will need to make alternative arrangements for the end of this week.

Transdev has confirmed two days of strike action for Thursday and Friday.

The action is being taken by workers in a dispute over pay. Siptu members at Luas have called for a pay increase of between between 8.5% and 53.8% after tram operator Transdev said no pay increase would be offered over the next five years unless it is in line with the Consumer Price Index (CPI).

The strike will start on Thursday morning with normal services resuming on Saturday at 6.30 am.

More stoppages are planned on Thursday 18 February and Friday 19 February.
