A three-day walkout involving around 400 workers at housing charity Shelter was suspended on Monday of this week.
The workers are members of the Unite union and are battling pay cuts worth up to £5,000.
Union officials say bosses made concessions in talks at conciliation service Acas. Stewards called off the strike to put the developments to members.
Workers are in dispute as they fear that the attack on pay for frontline staff will create a two-tier workforce.
This could threaten the service they provide to homeless and vulnerable people.
Shelter’s main offices are in London, Glasgow and Sheffield. The planned walkout would also have affected smaller workplaces including in Manchester and Bristol.
The dispute at Shelter follows major disputes at St Mungo’s Broadway (SMB) and One Housing.
Bosses’ moves to settle shows how the strike threat had them rattled.
If workers’ demands aren’t met they should walk out for more.
