Bus services return to normal

Bus services in the city are returning to normal following a stoppage by drivers this morning.

Services resumed after 10.30am.

The reason for the strike was due to a disciplinary matter involving one bus driver in the Limerick Fleet.

One driver spoke to local radio this morning saying,

“A driver was dismissed with effect from midnight last Saturday in relation to a licences problem. We appealed it (SIPTU) and while the appeal is ongoing the driver should have remained on the roster which he wasn’t put down to do.

He was taken off the roster. In effect he was dismissed. When we discovered that this morning , we had to take some action”

Bus Éireann has apologised to commuters for the disruption.
