LONDON (Reuters) – About 1,000 British beer delivery drivers have suspended plans to take strike action at the end of this month after receiving a better pay offer from logistics company GXO, the Unite union said on Thursday.

“Following a significantly improved pay offer from  the strike action planned for next week has been suspended as an act of good faith,” Unite national officer for food, drink and agriculture Joe Clarke said.
