RMT secures pay deal on Eurostar

11 July 2023

RMT Press Office:

Railway workers on Eurostar have secured a pay deal following negotiations between RMT and management.

The deal means directly employed Eurostar staff will get a  pay rise between  8 and 17 percent depending on their grade and role. 

All staff will get a minimum uplift of £4,300 for everyone on £45,000 or below.

Other measures included within the package are increases in travel benefits, 100% basic pay for weeks 27-40 of maternity leave and support for bringing in greater digital services. 
RMT general secretary Mick Lynch said: "I congratulate our members on securing a negotiated settlement on pay and conditions. 
"We have negotiated a settlement on pay, secured jobs and improved the conditions for our members.
"This approach from Eurostar is a far cry away from the train operating companies who want to cut thousands of jobs, close hundreds of ticket offices and offer us a measly pay deal.
"RMT has negotiated pay deals on every part of the railway where the Department of Transport does not have the mandate over the rail operators."
