The Facts

British trial lawyers ended a weeks-long strike on Monday after voting to accept the government’s pay offer.
The Criminal Barristers Association (CBA), which has more than 2,000 members and represents barristers in England and Wales, said roughly 57% of trial lawyers voted to accept the government’s pay offer.
The strike officially ended at 16:00 GMT on Monday.
Criminal barristers walked out indefinitely on September 5th, refusing to take on new cases after weeks of dispute over government funding.
The government’s offer consisted of a 54 million pound investment, along with a 15% fee rise for criminal barristers. The fee rise will apply to the vast majority of cases currently before the Crown Court.
