An expected strike of BT managers over pay has been averted for now, after the union representing them agreed to...

temporarily suspend strike action against pay.

But if an agreement is not made in the next 28 days union members, numbering about 14,000, could walk out.

Connect announced the planned strike action earlier this month at the same time that BT reported £2.6bn profits in its preliminary results for the financial year ending 31 March.

"BT contacted us very quickly and wanted to engage in more talks," said James Allen, campaigns manager at Connect. "In an effort to avoid industrial action we have agreed to resume negotiations."

He said that If BT staff do not get a fair pay offer there will be industrial action.

Connect is not happy about the distribution of pay and the fact that some managers get paid less than those they manage.
