A crippling strike by more than 10,000 electricians across Ireland has been suspended.
The Technical Engineering and Electrical Union said pickets would be removed from dozens of construction sites after the Labour Court recommended a 4.9 per cent pay rise.
At a meeting in London, the TEEU said it was satisfied with the wage increase.
However general secretary designate Eamon Devoy said workers “reserved the right to reactivate our industrial action” if employers did not accept the rises.
The TEEU said the Labour Court has proposed a 4.9 per cent pay rise, made up of 2.5 per cent in September and 2.4 per cent in January.
Projects across the country were hit by the strikes, with pickets erected out the front of the Dublin Airport’s Terminal 2 and the new Lansdowne Road stadium sites.
