British Airways check-in staff approved a pay settlement that their union said amounts to a 13% raise, while Uber Technologies Inc. agreed to raise fares in the UK to boost earnings for its drivers.

BA employees “overwhelmingly backed” the settlement, the Unite union said Monday, after announcing last month that an agreement had been reached to avert strikes at the carrier’s London Heathrow hub.
