Members of the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House have voted in favour of a two-year pay deal: 2% for 2014/15 and 2% for 2015/16.

The members also met in May to discuss the possibility of a new media agreement to take effect from September 2015.

The increase for the current season will apply to ancillary payments and be backdated to 1 September 2014.

Meanwhile, extras and deputies working at ROH have suffered a three-year pay freeze, but will receive the 2% uplift for 2015/16 and an increase for 2016/17, when it is agreed.

The MU is working to improve terms and conditions for extras and deputies in other areas and will be in touch with those freelancers who work under the agreement to consult in due course.

Members who would like an update on these negotiations can contact London Regional Organiser, Naomi Pohl.
