The red and green Luas lines are not operating today and tomorrow as SIPTU workers pursue pay increases of up to 53%.

Around 90,000 Luas customers are being forced to make alternative transport arrangements each day.

A further two-day stoppage has been scheduled for next week, and so far there is no sign of any intervention to break the deadlock.
