Talks will resume today at the Labour Relations Commission aimed at preventing a further 2-day train strike scheduled for next Sunday and Monday.
The trade union Siptu and the National Bus and Rail Union (NBRU) as well as management at Iarnrod Eireann held exploratory talks at the Labour Relations Commission on Saturday.
The dispute centres on the unilateral introduction by management at the company of temporary pay cuts of between 1.7 and 6pc for staff from Sunday of last week. The pay cuts will remain in place for 28 months.
The Irish Times reported on Saturday that an internal Department of Transport document said Iarnrod Eireann was facing losses of E20 million even after the implementation of the controversial temporary pay cuts for staff.
