Planned strike action due to start today at a Birmingham glass company has been called off.
Workers at Pilkington Automotive, in Kings Norton, have been at loggerheads with bosses over claims that staff doing the same job in nearby Redditch are receiving £3,000 more in annual wages.
Non-operative grade staff had planned to hold two, 24-hour walkouts starting at 6am today and Monday but these have now been stopped.
A continuous work-to-rule system for salaried staff, which started on 26 June and is due to run until July 10, remains unaffected by today's announcement.
The planned strikes and ban on working overtime involves around 130 employees.
Pilkington Automotive said in a statement today: "(We) regret the current industrial action at the plant in Kings Norton.
"The company and Unite the Union have agreed to enter into ACAS Conciliation discussions over the current pay proposal.
"As a result, the strike action was suspended at midnight on July 2. The pay proposal ranges between two and three per cent depending on position.
"The Kings Norton operation is the only automotive original equipment operation in the UK. The company also has an automotive aftermarket UK operation which is based in Redditch."
Pilkington Automotive is part of the NSG Group and specialises in supplying glass to both original equipment and automotive glass replacement markets.
Among its customers are Jaguar Land Rover but the initial impact of the walkout on supplies to the luxury vehicle maker is not known.
Unite regional officer Brian Rickers said this week the company had not addressed this issue over pay during the last four years.
