Sheffield tram strike called off

Issue No. 2173

The Unite union has called off a planned three-day strike on Sheffield supertrams after the employer, Stagecoach, offered a revised pay offer.

Workers had voted by five to one in favour of action. Stagecoach has now offered a two-year deal, which includes a one-off payment followed by a pay rise next May.

Workers will be balloted on the new offer on Wednesday and Thursday of next week.
