First Western Rail staff have secured a bonus for working during the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
The agreement, which was reached after extensive negotiations with representatives from the Rail, Maritime and Train (RMT) union, will give employees a flat-rate payment for the Olympic period in addition to enhanced payments for additional services being run by the train company and in recognition of the busy periods expected.
Bob Crow, general secretary at RMT, said: “The First Great Western deal is a massive breakthrough that fully appreciates the additional pressure on every member of staff.”
No additional information has been released. First Great Western declined to comment.
