Traffic wardens in Camden have suspended a proposed strike, due to take place this week, as union members said they had received a “significantly improved” pay offer.
Camden Unison members working for Camden Council’s parking contractor, NSL, had voted in favour of industrial action, set to take place from today until Thursday.
The dispute is over pay. Most wardens are paid £8.92 per hour and they are asking for a rise to £9.50. NSL had offered £9.27.
On Friday, Camden Unison announced it would suspend the strike.
A statement on its website said: “Monday’s scheduled NSL strike action has been suspended in the light of a significantly improved offer from NSL. Members on the NSL contract will be meeting on Monday to discuss and vote on the content of the offer.
“Please note that there is not a final settlement and the possibility of further action remains, but there has been real progress made over the past 24 hours.”
