Strike by Shelter staff called off after new pay deal accepted

Written by Alan Jones

A planned strike by workers at the Shelter charity has been called off after a new pay deal was accepted.

Members of the Unite union were due to walk out for three days from Tuesday but last-ditch talks have helped secure a deal.

Unite said it had secured a "vastly improved" 4% pay offer worth around £500 for each member of staff.

Regional officer Peter Storey said: "This is an excellent result that has been achieved by the tremendous solidarity and determination of our members.

"Thankfully Shelter's management came to their senses and made a realistic offer.

"Hopefully the improved pay offer will result in improved industrial relations at Shelter and we can build on this pay increase to end the low pay culture currently experienced by the charity's staff."
