Unite has suspended the industrial action due to be taken by more than 3,200 drivers and more than 200 engineers to allow for an improved offer to be balloted on by members. 

If the offer is rejected, all out indefinite strike action will begin at 0001 hrs on Monday 20 March.

Unite regional officer Sulinder Singh said: “Following significant progress with the company in negotiations, an improved pay offer was made. Strike action scheduled to begin this Thursday has been postponed to allow our members to vote on the offer.”
