The first of two two-day strikes by union Bectu to protest against the BBC's £2bn sell-off of its technology arm to IT services firm Siemens Business Services (SBS) has been cancelled.
The union called off the action - due to take place on 30 and 31 July - after SBS made an improved offer to BBC Technology's 1,400 staff, covering Bectu's key demand for a three-year guarantee of no changes in terms and conditions.
The revised offer includes improved pensions benefits for staff retiring early, and an embargo against redeploying former BBC Technology staff outside the city in which they currently work.
Bectu members will vote on the revised terms on 12 August.
Luke Crawley, Bectu representative, said: "We're officially neutral on the terms and conditions offer that Siemens has made ... conversely, we advised members to vote against the previous offer."
However, the union has not yet called off its second planned strike, scheduled for 13 and 14 August.
The BBC acknowledged the latest move from Bectu and said in a statement: "BBC output remains unaffected by the decision to call off the strike, and contingency plans will remain in place for any action that might be undertaken during the 13 and 14 August."
