Hundreds of bus workers in Devon are set to suspend upcoming strike action after management tabled new pay proposals.

The strike action was due to start on Friday 13th October, Tuesday 17th October and Monday 30th October 2017 but has been suspended.

The RMT union has instructed its members to work as normal on those days.

After careful consideration and noting this development, the union’s National Executive Committee has decided to suspend the planned industrial action. The union will now conduct a referendum on the new proposals in the coming days.

This shows yet again what can be achieved when trade union members stand together. It is a tribute to our members that the union has been able to make Stagecoach South West come back to the table with an improved offer.

– Mick Cash, RMT General Secretary
