RMT members have voted to take a new pay offer which will end industrial action in Cumbria. 

Train staff for Avanti West Coast, Northern and TransPennine Express all voted for the deal which has come after 18 months of industrial action. 

The deal with the Rail Delivery Group (RDG) includes a backdated pay rise for last year and job security guarantees.

General Secretary Mick Lynch said: “Our members have spoken in huge numbers to accept this unconditional pay offer and no compulsory redundancies until the end of 2024.

"I want to congratulate them on their steadfastness in this long industrial campaign.

“We will be negotiating further with the train operators over reforms they want to see. And we will never shy away from vigorously defending our members terms and conditions, now or in the future. 

“This campaign shows that sustained strike action and unity gets results and our members should be proud of the role they have played in securing this deal.”

ASLEF are still in dispute with the rail operating companies and are taking strike action on Sunday, December 3 across Cumbria.
