Talks via the mediation service Acas have resulted in a negotiated settlement to the long-running dispute between Northampton General Hospital and 55 pathology workers.
The deal was accepted by the pathology staff at a meeting convened by their union, Unite, last night.
The new agreement will see changes to the pathology staff contracts effective from March 2015.
Acceptance of the new terms will see the workforce will return to work on Monday 28 July 2014.
Neither party will be commenting further on the details as the focus now is to secure a swift return to normal working at the hospital.
