A strike by Bus Eireann staff is looking increasingly likely after unions said they would not attend talks on cutbacks to a payback of up to 30%.

The company has written to unions saying it will go out of business if proper steps are not taken to address its cost base and inefficiencies.

Bus Eireann have offered a pay increase between 1 to 3% per annum over 4 years depending on the level of income.

Bus Eireann Chief Executive Ray Hernan invited Dermot O’Leary to a meeting next Tuesday to discuss what is proposed.

He rejected the invitation to talks and warned that his organisation would be consulting with its fellow unions to agree a coordinated response to any attempt to impose the changes.

IPU President Daragh Connolly described the findings as shocking and he was concerned at the level of violent crimes against pharmacy staff which he said was extremely worrying and utterly unacceptable.
