The Transport Minister Paschal Donohue says he does not want to cut the government’s subvention to Irish Rail any further. Paschal Donohue says he will negotiate to maintain the current level of funding in the forthcoming budget. Both SIPTU and the NBRU say the issue of state funding for the company is central to the cost-cutting row that has lead to industrial action at Irish Rail. Talks are underway at the Labour Relations Commission in a bid to resolve the dispute. A further three days of strike action are planned by Siptu and the NBRU for September 7th, 8th and 21st. Minister Donohue is still refusing to intervene directly in the dispute – saying it would not be appropriate at this point: [audio_player src=”http://media.radiokerry.ie/mediamanager/embed/audio/27703/medium/”]
