A threatened strike by drivers who deliver Argos goods has been suspended.

A three-day walk-out had been planned by Unite members in the run-up to Christmas in a dispute over holiday back pay.

Members employed by Wincanton at a distribution centre in Staffordshire had planned to walk out from next Tuesday until December 22.

Unite regional officer Rick Coyle said: “We have had constructive talks with the Wincanton management today and, as a result, we have hammered out a deal that Unite feels it can recommend to our members.

“The details of the deal are confidential and we will be balloting our drivers on the offer."
