ASLEF today announced that they would be recommending suspension of action on the Gatwick express service following late night talks which resulted in a new deal for drivers.


“The settlement will mean that our drivers receive an 8.1 per cent pay rise for a 26 month deal” said Steve Grant, ASLEF District Secretary.


“This is a win win deal – our members will be able to work this Christmas knowing that they are appropriately valued. I will be recommending to members that they accept this deal.”


The deal means that industrial action planned for 24th December will not proceed.


The pay deal takes drivers from £29,500 to 30,000 on the 31st April 2004 and up to £30,500 from 7 February 2005.
