Bitter spat turns personal as threat of all-out strike now on cards
The threat of an all-out Luas strike is looming after the row over pay deepened when Siptu called for the resignation of the State's chief mediator.
Passengers must endure another strike this weekend as there appears to be no end in sight to the disruptive row.
Siptu general president Jack O'Connor yesterday accused the director general of the Workplace Relations Commission, Kieran Mulvey, of bias against unions and said his union would not deal with it while he was at the helm. He said it was not credible for someone in his position to "attack" one of the parties to an industrial dispute.
