RMT union members at train operators vote to accept pay deal

Members of the RMT union working for train operators have voted to accept a pay deal, marking an end in part to the long-running national rail dispute.

The union announced an overwhelming vote in favour in an electronic ballot of a 5% pay deal for 2022-23, allowing talks to continue on a further deal for 2023-24 without the threat of strikes or layoffs.

The train drivers union Aslef remains in dispute and a week of action including an overtime ban and rolling strikes begins on Friday.
