Mayo train drivers plan industrial action
January 22, 2004
(16:55) Train services to and from Mayo are threatened with disruption tomorrow because of unofficial industrial action by train drivers in Westport.
Six drivers, who are members of SIPTU and the ATGWU, are in dispute with Iarnród Éireann over rostering arrangements.
The dispute has been referred to the Labour Court, but the drivers have warned they intend to withdraw their services tomorrow.
Six trains carrying an estimated 2,000 passengers between Dublin and Westport could be affected. Iarnród Éireann said it's planning to provide alternative bus services.
