A planned strike by frontline workers for homelessness charity Shelter has been suspended following a new pay offer by management.

Around 400 members of staff had been due to walk out on Tuesday for three days, including advice and support workers based at the organisation’s Sheffield office on Furnival Gate.

But it was announced on Monday afternoon that the walkout had been suspended following talks between bosses and union Unite.

A fresh offer was made by Shelter management, which will be put to members in a ballot.

Unite regional officer Peter Storey said: “After intense negotiations, Shelter management have put forward an improved offer. It represents a significant improvement on previous offers by the charity.”
