Crunch talks for DAA and taxi drivers

Mark Hilliard

THE Dublin Airport Authority (DAA) and taxi drivers are to enter crunch talks from Monday in a bid to avoid further strike action.

The two-day withdrawal of services at the airport this week -- which was sparked by a reduction of up to 70 spaces for taxis in a waiting area prior to picking up passengers -- was brought to an end yesterday.

Drivers agreed to go back to work following a gruelling 13-hour round of negotiations between the DAA and five representative organisations.

The DAA is to reinstate the disputed area of overflow parking for two weeks.
