RMT Press Office:
RMT suspends strike action on West Midlands Trains to allow for referendum on new offer.
General Secretary Mick Cash said:
"Due to the receipt of an improved offer on the future role of the guard on West Midlands Trains all action, including this Saturday, has been suspended and we will be holding a referendum vote with a recommendation to accept the deal.
"I want to pay tribute to the RMT members whose resilience and solidarity has got us to the point where we can suspend action with those same members having the final say."
