The strikes by drivers of Stagecoach buses were due to take place next week.
The Stagecoach employees voted in favour of a deal worth 12.4 per cent over two years, leading to the hourly rate increasing from £14 an hour to £15.79 over ten months. This year, pay will increase by 7.9 per cent backdated to July 1 with another 4.5 per cent from May 1 2024.
Unite general secretary Sharon Graham said: “By voting for strike action and standing firm in their demands, the Stagecoach Warwickshire drivers achieved a substantial increase in their wages.
"Once again, Unite’s unrelenting focus on defending and improving jobs, pay and conditions is paying dividends for our members.”
