Nurses in a Dublin hospital are carrying out a work to rule to highlight overcrowding in the hospital. This follows on from a token stoppage by 100 members of the Irish Nurses and Midwives Association earlier in the week.
Meanwhile Iarnrod Eireann,the National Bus and Railworkers Union and SIPTU are meeting at the Workplace Relations Commission( formerly the Labour Relations Commission). The row concerns payments for past productivity by train drivers. Token stoppages are planned on October 23 and November 6.
