A three-day strike starting tomorrow (Tuesday 16 December) at the housing charity Shelter has been suspended following talks at Acas, Britain’s largest union, Unite announced today (Monday 15 December).

The new offer will be put to members in a ballot.

Commenting, Unite regional officer Peter Storey said: “After intense negotiations at Acas, Shelter management have put forward an improved offer. It represents a significant improvement on previous offers by the charity and will be put to our members in a ballot over the coming days.”
