The question has been asked on politics.ie: “Are public servants to blame for Dublin’s traffic?”
Here is how the roads look at lunch time today:
It appears those who dont want to be called scabs or blacklegs have either spent the day lying in bed or have fucked off up the north to spend the money that they apparently don’t have.
A strikebreaker is someone who continues to work during strike action by trade unionists or temporary and permanent replacement workers hired to take the place of those on strike. Strikebreakers are commonly given derogatory terms like scab and blackleg. The act of working during a strike – whether by strikebreakers, management personnel, non-unionized employees or members of other unions not on strike – is known as crossing the picket line, regardless of whether it involves actually physically crossing a line of picketing strikers. Crossing a picket line can result in passive and/or active retaliation against that working person.
What about crossing the borderline?
RTE have discovered why the traffic in Dublin is so light as the OP suggests. It seems that there are massive tailbacks to Newry which is unprecedented on a midweek workday. The suggestion is that the public servants are taking advantage of the day off to shop up North! Bullet in the foot for public servants!!
If this is true they are going to be laughed at. They won’t even pay the taxes they keep telling us are so necessary to “maintain services”. Talk about a PR disaster.
From the AA website: Closer to Newry there are reports of up to 6km tailbacks on the A1 into Newry.
