Planned all-out strike action by Arriva bus drivers in North London, due to begin next week, has been suspended after workers received a new pay offer.

The 2,000 bus drivers, who are members of Unite, the UK’s leading union, who are based at eight depots in North London were due to begin continuous strike action on Tuesday 4 October.

Following fresh negotiations earlier today, a new offer was tabled. Unite’s members will now be balloted on the offer.

Unite regional officer Steve Stockwell said: “Following intensive negotiations a new offer has been tabled and as an act of goodwill the planned strike action has been suspended.”
