Train drivers to vote on pay offer
Friday 26 August 2011
Train drivers who went on strike in a row over pay are to be balloted on an offer worth 5%, it was announced today.
Drivers on First TransPennine Express walked out on Wednesday and were due to take action again today but called it off so that fresh talks could be held.
The company said that following the meeting the drivers' union Aslef had agreed to consult its members on a proposed 5% pay rise.
Vernon Barker, the company's managing director, said: "We are pleased that through dialogue and discussion we have been able to get to a position where the Aslef negotiating team believe they can now recommend a deal to their membership."
The train operator said it will be running its full timetable following the calling off of industrial action.
