Laois work commuters, Christmas shoppers and anybody who relies on trains to get to Dublin and other locations are are facing travel chaos with news that train workers could go on strike.

The November 14th strike date will clash with the Ireland v Denmark World Cup play-off at Lansdowne Road.

Following a meeting this afternoon, the Trade Union Group representing all workers at Irish Rail, in pursuance of a long overdue flat pay award, have chose to serve notice on the Company for the following series of industrial actions.

Members of SIPTU and the NBRU have voted overwhelmingly in favour of industrial action, and 24-hour stoppages will take place on November 1, 7, 14 and 23rd, as well as December 8th.

SIPTU members voted by 84% in favour of industrial action in a ballot that was held today in Liberty Hall, the headquarters of SIPTU.

It's likely that rail passengers will face disruption in the run up to Christmas after talks aimed at solving the pay dispute collapsed without agreement.

Management say they offered a 1.75% increase for one year, through performance management, and revisions to redeployment policy and payroll.
