Go Safe

  • Fianna Fáil is  calling for last-minute talks to prevent speed-camera staff going on strike this  Bank Holiday weekend.

    More than half of Go Safe's vans will be off the road for 72 hours from tomorrow (Sat) morning at 9 o'clock.

    It's the second round of industrial action, in a row over working conditions and union recognition.

    Fianna Fáil's transport spokesman, Sligo based Marc MacSharry, is urging both sides to come to a resolution today.

  • Speed camera staff have begun a 72-hour strike this morning.

    At least half of Go Safe's employees will down tools in a row over working conditions and union recognition.

    However, the company says safety cameras will continue to be operational over the entire Bank Holiday weekend.

    Moyagh Murdock, the chief executive of the Road Safety Authority, is calling on drivers to stay safe on the roads.
