Strike action by 1,000 draymen employed by multinational giant GXO has been suspended following a much improved pay offer by the company.

The first round of strikes was due to run between Monday 31 October and Friday 4 November. However following the new improved pay offer from GXO the strike action has been suspended.

Members of Unite, the UK’s leading union will now be balloted on the new offer.

Unite national officer for food, drink and agriculture Joe Clarke said: “Following a significantly improved pay offer from GXO the strike action planned for next week has been suspended as an act of good faith.”

 The industrial action would have affected 22 GXO depots spread across the UK.
