South West Trains and RMT resolve pay row

South
West Trains’ dispute with the RMT union is over.

The pay
row – which led to three 48-hour stoppages – has been resolved with the two
parties reaching agreement over rates.

SWT
managing director Andrew Haines said “We are delighted these strikes have been
called off.”

The rail
operator is now in talks with the RMT about the union’s future aspirations.
These will centre on:

● reducing
the working week

● introducing
family-friendly policies, and

● the
October 2002 pay review.
