Tens of thousands of rail passengers in the Republic of Ireland face disruption on Monday due to a second day of strike action by Irish Rail employees.
Unite's Regional Industrial Organiser for the Transport Sector, Davy McMurray said that rail drivers organised by Unite were standing in full solidarity with striking rail workers in Republic of Ireland
"Rail workers in the Republic are facing cuts to pay ranging between 1.7% and 6.1% as a result of management 'cost-cutting' proposals," he said.
"Workers in NBRU and SIPTU are taking industrial action this weekend which Unite drivers based in Northern Ireland will not be crossing picket lines."
Unions at Iarnród Eireann are taking part in a series of work stoppages this month in a row over pay cuts.
Around 60,000 passengers were hit by the action of workers at SIPTU and the NBRU on Sunday, particularly those attending the All-Ireland senior football semi-final between Mayo and Kerry in Croke Park.
