A dispute over pay and conditions for manual workers in Jersey is unlikely to be solved for at least a month, the States Employment Board has said.
On Thursday Unite the union put strike action on hold while negotiations continued over changes to working conditions and wages.
It follows the formation of a joint working party, which has been tasked to report back by mid-October.
A board spokesman welcomed the pause in strike action and ongoing discussions.
Terms of reference for the report will now be drawn up to establish how both parties will work together to modernise pay, terms and conditions of service.
