G4S security staff aiming to stage strike action have called off their industrial action due to an eleventh hour offer from bosses.
Trade union GMB had warned of a Christmas cash shortage if the strikes had gone ahead.
Some 1,500 members who deliver cash and coins to a range of clients across the UK, voted to strike from 3am on December 5 after rejected a pay offer from G4S Cash Solutions.
However, union bosses say the strikes have been temporarily halted while members voted on a new offer from bosses.
Eamon O’Hearn, GMB National Officer, said: “G4S Cash staff are low paid workers doing a dangerous job, transferring the cash so many of us rely on every day.
“They deserve decent pay in this cost of living crisis. They will now decide whether this offer is enough.”
