A Kerry deputy, who’s the chairman of the Oireachtas Committee on Transport, says he’s open to meeting fellow members as soon as possible to discuss the Dublin Bus strike.
Cork TD, Mick Barry, says he wrote to committee chairman Brendan Griffin and to other members, asking that an emergency meeting be convened ahead of the action taking place today and tomorrow.
Mick Barry, who’s also a member of the Oireachtas Committee on Transport, says he received no response from the chairman, Deputy Brendan Griffin and from the rest of the members to the letter he wrote, seeking an emergency meeting on the Dublin Bus pay dispute.
Deputy Barry also asked that Transport Minister, Shane Ross, be requested to attend.
The Anti-Austerity Alliance/ People Before Profit TD says this shows a lack of interest in workers’ concerns.
However, Brendan Griffin says he’s open to meeting as soon as possible to discuss the Dublin Bus pay dispute.
The Fine Gael TD for Kerry says he needs agreement from all members.
He says the committee is scheduled to meet next week to agree their work programme and that he’s also been in contact with the committee clerk.
