September 6th: Trade union Unite, which represents over 90% of crane operators in Ireland, today (Wednesday) suspended strike action and protests scheduled for tomorrow in response to the Construction Industry Federation agreeing to engage with it through the WRC and the Labour Court, where necessary, in respect to crane operators’ pay demands.

Pickets were set to be placed at Sisk sites at Capital Dock and Grand Canal Dock in the morning with a demonstration over Health & Safety concerns planned outside the Health & Safety Authority headquarters on James Joyce Street.

Unite the union take the view that this is a positive development insofar as the dispute now will be in the appropriate venue for discussion and hopefully advancement.
