Quay assistants at the centre of a contract dispute at Portsmouth International Port have voted to accept a deal set by Unite and the port's management.
The new agreement will see all staff moved onto the superior ‘old’ contract, and all overtime after midnight will be worked on a voluntary basis.
In a joint statement, the employers, Portsmouth City Council and Unite, said: "A consultative ballot has taken place amongst Unite members and the quay assistants have unanimously voted in favour of accepting the new proposal.
“This result has resolved the current difficulties and both sides look forward to working constructively in the future."
The resolution came after a unanimous ballot resulted in favour of strike action which, it was feared, could affect Olympic travel.
