Jersey strike called off

The strike by Connex drivers was called off late yesterday, just hours before they were due to walk out. Drivers, represented by Unite, had been pressing for a 6% pay rise and had rejected an offer of 2.5%.  
The strike was to be the first of a series of walkouts, but last-minute talks between the union and bus operator Connex resulted in an agreement to cancel the strike. They issued a joint statement saying they expect to conclude negotiations by tomorrow.
