Woolwich Ferry strike suspended after progress in talks over 'bullying'

A planned strike next week by workers on the Woolwich Ferry in London has been suspended after progress from talks in a dispute over a "bullying culture".

Members of Unite were due to walk out for 24 hours on Tuesday, threatening disruption to passengers.

Depending on how negotiations progress with employer Briggs Marine Contractors, which runs the service on behalf of Transport for London, a decision will be made about whether a 24-hour strike on Friday April 21 goes ahead.
