Local train drivers to be balloted for industrial action as talks break down

Train drivers in Carlow, Kilkenny and around the country are to be balloted for industrial action.

The Irish Rail drivers are to be balloted because of a long-running dispute over working conditions at the company.

It’s after talks between SIPTU, the NBRU and management at the company broke down at the Work Place Relations Commission yesterday.

In a statement SIPTU says the decision to ballot drivers was made after management refused to engage in a talks process recommended by the Labour Court.
