THE NATIONAL BUS and Rail Union yesterday announced work stoppages on a number of days including both All-Ireland finals and a semi-final.

The union say that workers are being asked to accept unfair pay cuts and run a modern service on funding that’s at a level equivalent to 1998.

SIPTU have also rejected the pay cut but voted for a work-to-rule and not all out stoppage.

The company says that savings are needed to secure the future of the semi-state.

Today’s question, Do you support the planned rail strikes?

Poll Results:

No. (4361)
Yes. (1958)
Don't know. (468)
