star this property answer text <p>The rail industry has been shifting away from RPI over time and most rail industry costs now are not linked to RPI, with the primary exception of wages. The Secretary of State for Transport has asked the Rail Delivery Group (RDG) to develop an approach for how earnings growth for all employees could be more closely aligned with CPI, with the aim of ensuring that the railway is affordable for the fare paying and tax paying public. He has not made any reference to a ‘pay award system’ for any groups of staff.</p><p><em> </em></p><p>Pay negotiations and the settlements reached by individual employers and trade unions remain a matter for local collective bargaining.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>In August, the Secretary of State for Transport wrote to the Rail Delivery Group and to the trades unions, asking them to adopt CPI, and not RPI, as the basis for inflation when negotiating wage deals. As you know, CPI is the more widely used and reliable measure of inflation.</p><p> </p><p>This would be a significant step in ensuring that costs in the rail industry do not rise faster than ticket prices. It will help to ensure that the railway is affordable for the fare paying and tax paying public for decades to come, while making sure that those who work on the railway continue to receive fair reward. Of course, pay negotiations and the settlements reached by individual employers and trade unions remain a matter for local collective bargaining.</p><p> </p><p>In his letter to the trades unions the Secretary of State invited them to meet with the Rail minister so this might be discussed further.</p> more like this
