Tube drivers are set to see pay go over £50k

Tube drivers in the capital will see their pay go over the £50,000 a year mark under a four-year wage deal negotiated between London Underground and union leaders.

The Rail Maritime and union has begun consulting on a four-year pay deal which LU said offered the prospect of no industrial action over wages until at least 2015. Under the deal, staff will get a 5% pay hike this year followed plus 0.5% in the next three years.
