TRAM DRIVERS in Croydon, south London, suspended strikes planned for this week after they forced management to offer a much improved pay rise. The drivers, members of the TGWU union, struck recently. That has led their bosses, part of the giant First Group corporation, to make an offer which would raise minimum pay above £20,000.
Workers were voting on whether to accept it as Socialist Worker went to press. TGWU union officials recommended acceptance of the deal.
