A rail strike planned for next Tuesday and two other dates later in November and early December has been suspended following the issuing of a Labour Court recommendation this afternoon.

Staff at Irish Rail will receive increases of 7.5 per cent over three years under the terms of a new Labour Court recommendation, if accepted.

In addition, they would receive a €500 tax-free voucher.

The recommendation also proposes time-limited discussions would take place on a series of reforms and efficiency measures.

The recommendation is currently being considered by the group of trade unions representing the 3,800 staff.

While it is being considered the planned rail strike next Tuesday November 14th and for further dates on Thursday November 23rd and Friday December 8th have been deferred.

This will be welcome news to local commuters and football fans with the Republic of Ireland due to face Denmark in the second leg of their World Cup play-off at the Aviva Stadium on Tuesday.
