    The 2023 pay increase will depend on further negotiations within local train companies on the reforms needed to meet the tough financial challenge the industry still faces, while also improving how we serve our customers. These discussions will take place between February and the end of April 2024

The discussions for this MOU have been at a national level. Now accepted by RMT members, the RMT’s national dispute mandate will come to an end.

We recognise that this has been a really challenging time for everyone working in the industry. We all want to see the sector thrive, so we can secure its long-term future for our colleagues, our customers and the communities we serve.

The grades covered by the offer are: All station-based grades, all on board grades (including catering and train-crew), all administration grade and all Fleet & Engineering grades.
