Network Rail Strike Action Suspended

Tuesday 2nd June 2015

Following talks with ACAS, planned strike action this month by RMT union members has been suspended following an offer made of a 2% pay rise this year.

Now the three unions concerned, the RMT, Unite and TSSA will once again consider the revised pay offer.

The RMT general secretary, Mick Cash, said: “Following extensive Acas talks throughout the weekend RMT has now received a revised offer that enables us to suspend the planned industrial action while we consult in full on the details of the revised package with our Network Rail representatives.”

Network Rail chief executive Mark Carne said: “I am very pleased that the industrial action has been suspended. With ACAS’s help, we have had very constructive talks with the unions over the weekend and I hope they will be able to agree this deal.”
