Luas Strikes To Reduce Dublin To ‘Rural Level’ Transport Services


NEWS that Luas staff will strike for four days over two 48-hour periods has sent shockwaves through the Dublin commuting community.

In recent years, many commuters have become accustomed to travelling in and out of the city with minimal fuss and in a timely fashion, but the announcement of a strike will see Dublin reduced to a third rate ‘rural level’ transport service.

“It’ll be like living in the stone age, or Laois,” remarked aggravated Dublin commuter Trevor Carmody, “I haven’t needed to get a Dublin bus for about 3 years, this is a terrifying prospect”.

The strikes have been pencilled in for the 11th, 12th, 18th and 19th of February after Transdev rejected workers’ requests for pay increases, sparking fear amongst commuters.

“I’d rather call in sick than have to drive in the mornings, they don’t even let you do 120 in the bus lane anymore, I hope the Luas drivers are happy now,” another angry commuter Elaine Kearns shared with WWN.

Experts believe that the four strike dates will see the city suffer major disruption as the directionally impaired fail to find their way into town on their own.
