Engineers at one of our airbases servicing Apache helicopters in Afghanistan, have accepted a revised three-year pay offer and called off any industrial action.

Unite, which represents more than 100 staff employed by Morson Wynnwith at Wattisham in Suffolk, Prince Harry’s home base, said that its members voted overwhelmingly to accept the offer. This means that the work-to-rule and overtime ban, which started on 7th September in row over pay, has ended.

The three-year pay offer, now accepted, is for 2.25 per cent in the first year and then 2.5 per cent and 2.75 per cent in years two and three. It is backdated to April this year.
