LRC to present proposals in South Dublin County Council dispute

Ongoing industrial dispute centres on pay cuts to council staff.

DISCUSSIONS ON THE dispute involving the Impact trade union and South Dublin County Council management have been adjourned for the evening at the Labour Relations Commission.

The trade union said in a statement tonight that the LRC will table proposals for the consideration of the parties involved tomorrow morning.

The dispute centres on pay cuts: council management initially cut the pay of 13 staff members and revealed plans to introduce similar cuts to another 150 workers. Impact warned that a work stoppage would be held on Thursday if the parties could not reach an acceptable resolution.

A strike on 24 June disrupted services at the civic offices in Tallaght and Clondalkin, as well as several library branches. A second strike planned for two days later was suspended pending the LRC talks, though limited industrial action has been taking place.
