Tram Agus Éadrom Admin at 12:21 pm March 17, 2016 Begob. This morning/afternoon. St Patrick’s Day ‘revellers’ arrive at strike-free Stephen’s Green Luas station to catch the parade. More as we get it. Leah Farrell/Rollingnews FacebookTwitterPinterest Related posts: A Package With An Australian Address Meanwhile, On O’Connell Street Drinking For Ireland Luas Ça Change
That’s a lot of people. Might give the luas drivers something to think about.
If they went on strike, would people not just get around like they did before 2004? Is it that big a deal?
And if the bus drivers went on strike, sure people could just walk, like they did before the invention of the combustion engine.
Could you spell out the point you’re making there, because I don’t understand.
Could you do the same
Are you pulling my chain? My questions are pretty straight forward. Aren’t they?
I don’t understand it’s relevance to my questions. You’re the 3rd person who has said its obvious. Could you do me a favour and explain it to me?
Or sorry have I misinterpreted your comment?
And if people all lost their legs sure they would just crawl around on stumps
Or reverse-evolve into mud crawlers and just flip to work
And failing that – proto plasma flopping about
if only we could say thank you to the Luas drivers like we do on the bus,maybe they wouldn’t be so pissy
If I was getting off the Luas and some tool was taking my picture, I think I would punch them.
Or at least have some strong words. Even if you do have your press card stuck in your peak.
More reason if they’ve a press card
That’s the spirit!
Festering rage…. maintain it, always.
Calm down you 17 year old renegade.
I don’t think you would punch them.
Tickeling can be quite obnoxious
wow people using the luas farrell family reportage.
See, I’m slightly annoyed that they called off the strike because I’m in work today and they were going to pay for a taxi in the morning.
Boo, Luas drivers!
Amazing. Viola now re-branded as Transdev for some unknown reason (bad press maybe?) refused to speak to their employees for over seven years and all you clowns can do is bitch at the workers?
Even the way the media reported this dispute was shocking. Figures of upto 50% increase demanded etc while deliberately omitting the fact that the employer refused to negotiate until they were forced to.
For the record. This was NOT a Luas drivers vs Veolia dispute. ALL Veolia employees went on strike. They demanded better terms and conditions from a private operator of an Irish public transport system and given the operator’s record internationally, fair play to them.
Amen… but don’t mind the race to the bottom. Once we’re all there who’ll we have to spit on?
