Someone started a thread on Saturday about the Luas transport map, a rather entertaining thread too, which you can read here.

I was going to add it to the homepage, but upon checking http://www.luas.ie - got the following message.

What could this mean? Has the Luas stopped operations in Dublin? ;)

The Luas is just about the only efficient and well run public transport service in the country. It's no wonder that this frightens SIPTU and that therefore they feel the need to sabotage it with ridiculous demands - they don't want de brudders in CIE being shown up now, do they?

What do you mean ? How would de brudders in CIE be shown up ?

According to the article -

The 165 tram drivers work nine-hour shifts in a seven-day cycle, and currently receive 104 rest days off every year, excluding holidays...

However they are seeking an extra 23 days to "rest" as well as shorter working hours...


Train drivers with Irish Rail work an average of 9.36 hours per shift, get 96 rest days and 23 days annual leave.
What do you mean ?

veolia were stupid to get rid of the no strike clause, people can always walk to work if the tram drivers decide to go on strike.

The problem here is that the othe CIE drivers might decide to join in, for "solidarity"....

And it certainly is not solidarity with members of the travelling public that I am talking about.
