Management and unions representing Luas workers are locked in talks at the Workplace Relations Commission this evening. They’ve been continuing since first thing this morning – however drivers who make up 170 of the company’s 250 staff remain outside the process. A source close to Transdev – the company that runs Luas – says they remain optimistic a resolution can be reached today. The firm has already announced its buying in bus services in a bid to deal with strike for St Patrick’s Day. Several days of action are planned for later this month and April.
