Bank of England resolves dispute with striking workers
Bank of England staff have agreed an improved pay deal, ending the threat of further strikes, union officials said today. 

The Unite union said the deal, which did not go into details, follows three days of strike action in August.

These had been the first stoppages by staff at the central bank in more than 50 years.

"Unite is pleased to bring the Bank of England dispute to an end having secured significant improvements for staff across the organisation," a regional officer at the union, Mercedes Sanchez, said in a statement. 

A separate Bank of England statement said the agreed proposal "includes a range of measures focused on improving" its relationship with Unite.
