RMT SUSPENDS ACTION ON STAGECOACH SOUTH WEST BUSES AS NEW PAY OFFER IS PUT TO MEMBERS
RMT General Secretary Mick Cash said:
“The union is able to confirm that new pay proposals have been tabled by management following intense negotiations.
"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.
"Therefore, all the strike action which was due to start on Friday 13th October, Tuesday 17th October and Monday 30th October 2017 has been suspended and our members are instructed to work as normal on those 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.”
