Members of the RMT who work for Network Rail have voted to accept a pay offer, the union has announced.

The union, which represents thousands of maintenance workers and signallers, said its 20,000 Network Rail members had voted to accept a new and improved deal covering pay, jobs and conditions by a margin of three to one.

Members voted by 76 per cent to 24 per cent to accept the offer, in a turnout of nearly 90 per cent, the RMT said.

It comes after four days of strike action by Network Rail workers were cancelled earlier this month, as the offer was put to members in a referendum.

The RMT’s dispute with the 14 train operators, represented by the Rail Delivery group, is ongoing, but the deal with Network Rail means future strikes will have less impact.
