United Kingdom -Tyne and Wear Metro strike called off -June 15, 2012

After lengthy and tough negotiations, including a 24-hour strike on Thursday 7th of June, Tyne and Wear Metro unions and owner NEXUS reached a pay deal. The deal means the looming strike for the 21st of June is called off. Unions and employers agreed to a pay offer of 2.1% or a £520 pay increase, whichever is the greater, up to 3%, a £300 payment, plus a one-off bonus payment of £200 and additional travel benefits. The pay rise will have to be financed through efficiency cuts elsewhere in the organization.
