Limerick Bus drivers stage unofficial work stoppage

Bus Éireann have confirmed that it’s drivers in Limerick have gone on an unofficial strike since 7.00am this morning.

There are currently no city, provincial or inter-city services leaving the Limerick depot, Bus Éireann confirmed.

Reports suggest the reason for the strike is due to a disciplinary matter involving one bus driver.

It's unknown at this stage when services in the city and county will resume.

Bus Éireann spokesman Barry Coyle has spoken to RTE News Saying,

"The local management and indeed the central managers are attempting to find out exactly what the problem is and as we speak we are seeking to have discussions with the trade union representatives.

As we speak, I can assure you formally that we have not received any formal notification, good, bad or indifferent from either the trade unions or indeed their represenatives.

While it is unofficial, we would try and make all endeavours to curtail this particular development to a short period of time.We would be hopeful that some people can come together during the morning and come to some sort of resolution to get our buses back and to carry our passengers."

AA Roadwatch:
There are no Bus Eireann Services running in the Limerick region. This is the case until further notice
