Reading time: 2 min

News just in – strike action being taken by Unite Oxfam members has been suspended after talks resulted in an improved pay offer being made.

Over 500 workers began strike action on Friday December 8. Strikes scheduled for December 14, 15, 16 and 17 December have been postponed as an act of good faith while Unite ballots its members on the revised offer.

If the pay offer is rejected, strike action will begin again on December 20.

“Unite has been clear from the outset that this dispute could and should be resolved through negotiations,” said Unite regional coordinating officer Jamie Major.

“Following talks on Friday [December 8], an improved offer was made and therefore Unite has suspended action to allow its members to be balloted on the proposed deal,” he added.
