A planned strike by Stagecoach employees this week has been suspended.
The company announced the suspension pending a ballot outcome with members of the Unite union, representing the Stagecoach staff.
The company published a statement on Saturday which said:
“Customers are advised that following further constructive talks the proposed industrial action next week at our Walkergate, Slatyford and South Shields depots has now been suspended by the Unite union, pending a ballot of their members regarding the pay offer.
”Bus services operated by our Sunderland depot will also operate as normal.
As a result, there will be no industrial action in the Tyne and Wear area next week.”
