NHS staff in England have voted to accept a government pay offer, Unison has announced.
Some 67% of the union’s members agreed to the deal despite the dispute over pay prompting the first NHS strike in 34 years.
Unison leaders said although the offer did not go far enough it would make a difference - particularly to more than 250,000 of the lowest-paid in the NHS.
NHS Employers said the move is likely to signal the end of industrial action.
Ministers in England had initially awarded NHS staff a 1% increase, but only for those without automatic progression-in-the-job rises.
Automatic pay rises are given to about half of all staff. They are designed to reward professional development.
But an independent pay review board had said the 1% increase should be across the board.
The new offer would mean some people - particularly the lowest-paid members of the NHS - get more than a 1% pay rise - up to 5.6% next year. This would include some caterers, porters and administration staff.
But other workers on higher pay, including a number of experienced nurses and senior managers, would not stand to get the 1% pay rise. And for 2015-16 there would be a freeze on incremental rises in pay for higher-paid staff.
