It's crunch time for the Luas service. After weeks of disruptive strikes, Transdev has taken a hard line with its workers. Either they stop their industrial action, or they will suffer dire financial consequences.

The strikes have already hit them in the pocket. Taking industrial action automatically means they have to forfeit a bonus worth up to €3,000 under a collective agreement.

They have also suffered the loss of pay for the eight days they have gone out.
