Hundreds of British Airways workers voted on Friday to call off strike action after accepting a pay offer, the GMB union said. Nadine Houghton, GMB National Officer said: “No one wanted a summer strike at Heathrow, but our members had to fight for what was right.”

Earlier this month, check-in staff suspended strike action after the airline made an improved pay offer.

The vote to approve the offer was backed today by 75 percent or workers, according to GMB.

The union confirmed that workers will now receive a consolidated pay rise of eight percent, along with a one-off bonus.

Shift pay will also be reinstated.
