Dublin Bus slashes jobs

Dublin Bus is to axe around 150 drivers on top of the 290 workers it let go last year, it was revealed today.  It is the main transport provider in the Greater Dublin Area, carrying 70% of peak time public transport users into Dublin.
The company's spokeswoman said last year's cuts were linked with a €30m cost-saving plan but the latest round of job losses are due to the withdrawal of up to 90 buses.
She said bosses will enter talks with unions, but declined to say what would happen if they could not fill the 150 target through voluntary cuts.
