British Gas Workers On Strike

Centrica has said its new pension package is one of the best

A strike planned by British Gas engineers for Monday has been cancelled.

The GMB union and British Gas have spent two days trying to reach agreement over plans to close a final salary pension scheme to new staff.

About 6,000 workers have voted for a series of walk-outs over the row.

Despite cancelling Monday's strike the engineers still plan further action on 21 December, and again on 6 and 9 January if no resolution is reached.

The GMB wants the company to suspend its pension fund decision for a year while the scheme is re-evaluated.

However, British Gas parent company Centrica has said its new pension package is one of the best on the market.
