RMT union votes to end rail strikes until at least spring

Train passengers face further disruption this summer after members of the RMT rail union voted overwhelmingly for further strike action.

Rail workers have voted to accept a pay deal, ending their involvement in a long-running series of strikes.

Members of the RMT union agreed to an offer from train companies which included a backdated pay rise of 5% for 2022-23 as well as job security guarantees.

It means that RMT members will no longer be involved in industrial action until at least the spring of next year.

However, train drivers represented by the union Aslef will still strike.
