RMT to consult on revised offer from Network Rail

The RMT union has called off a potential strike and will discuss the details of a new revised package.

The new offer from Network Rail which has led to the cancellation of planned strikes involves a 2% pay rise this year, RPI next year, a job security package and efficiency savings, according to sources.

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.
