Over 500 ESB Technicians Begin Two Day All Out Strike As Industrial Action Escalates

The Independent Workers' Union began a work-to-rule over the Bank Holiday weekend, refusing to provide emergency cover even as rough weather hit many areas.

The ESB says there was no delay to repairing outages as contingency arrangements were enough to deal with it.
