Jersey manual workers strike called off

A strike is no longer being threatened by more than 1,100 manual workers due to an agreement with Jersey States.

Members of the Unite union voted in favour of industrial action last month after proposed changes to their pay and conditions were announced.

Talks between the union and the States Employment Board are due to continue over the changes to working conditions.

Nick Corbel, from the union, said industrial action could still be on the table if workers remained unhappy.

He said the agreement allowed the union to negotiate with the board on behalf of its members and ballot them on changes to their terms and conditions.

The States Employment Board has yet to comment.
