Bus Éireann gave no warning of going on strike last night and thousands of people were left stranded today as a result. This situation was made even worse when some Irish Rail workers refused to work in sympathy with their Bus Éireann colleagues.
Is the country suffering from strike fatigue now? Are the substantial losses at Bus Éireann a signal that the transport company should be closed down? Do you support the strike?
One Bus Éireann driver filled us in on why he was striking and also told us of the salary subsidies/premiums that the staff enjoy. It raised many an eyebrow with our listeners judging by your calls and text messages.
