Bakers’ union Bfawu called off strikes it had planned at Burton’s foods in Blackpool after bosses challenged them under the anti-union laws.

More than 86 percent of workers voted for action at the factory. But Bfawu called off the strikes after a last-ditch challenge from the company over the validity of the ballot.

The union has agreed to talks—but says if there is no agreement it will re-ballot members.
