Whatever about rejecting the pay deal on offer, the very least Luas workers could have done was defer strike action to next week.

The decision to pull services over Easter weekend, when hundreds of thousands of people are expected in the capital to commemorate the Easter 1916 Rising, is mean-spirited, unnecessary and does nothing to advance their cause.

It is absolute nonsense to pretend that this is aimed at the Luas operator Transdev. It is clearly aimed at ordinary people, as it will result in more cars in the city, pressure on scarce parking spaces, longer journey times and stress.
