Unison has suspended a planned strike for its NHS members in England which was scheduled for 29 January.
It follows several meetings with Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt to resolve disputes over pay.
The union said it will consult its members over a proposal put forward by the Department of Health.
The Royal College of Midwives, Unite and GMB have also confirmed they will suspend strike action planned for this coming Thursday.
Mr Hunt said the suspension was good news for patients.
