TRADE union ASLEF has today (Wednesday) called off its proposed six-day rail strike on the National Express East Anglia (NXEA) network.
The union and rail operator had been locked in talks after workers rejected a pay offer from NXEA. This followed a series of strikes in July and August.
Mark Phillips, deputy managing director, NXEA said: "I am very pleased that we have now reached agreement with ASLEF over this year's pay deal following constructive talks that have taken place with the union over recent days.
"As a result of these discussions, the on-going pay dispute is now resolved and the union has called off their strike action which was proposed to commence on Monday September 21.
