Workers at soft drinks giant A.G. Barr have suspended strike action scheduled to take place this week.
Unite the union members employed by the Irn-Bru manufacturer were set to walk out on October 13 and 16 in a dispute over pay.
Following talks with Acas, the union said that strike action has been suspended to allow discussions around a potential breakthrough in the pay dispute to continue.
Unite confirmed that the breakthrough involved new proposals on pay.
The scheduled strike action from October 20 and 30 remains in place until Unite’s A.G. Barr members have been consulted, and any subsequent vote is taken on a formal new pay offer which is tabled.
An AG Barr spokesperson said: “We are committed to continuing to work with our Trunker and Shunter Drivers and their trade union representatives to find a positive and constructive resolution.
“We have contingency plans in place to maintain customer service, and our distribution and deliveries are continuing as normal.”
