rail unions have made a deal with Network Rail. Transport workers will receive a 10% pay rise over the next two years and those working shifts during the Olympics will also get a bonus of £500.
In return for this the rail unions have agreed that during the run up to, and over the period of, the Olympics they will not take industrial action.
So, should the police look forward to a similar deal over the next two years? Of course not! We have been given a two year pay freeze and significant cuts to allowances. Anything to do with the fact that the police are legally barred from taking industrial action?
