Preston City Council union members were due to join workers from across the country in public sector strikes.
Members of Unison, Unite and GMB had called a strike but are now going back to the negotiating table.
A statement said: “All three unions have made it clear that they want to strengthen the collective bargaining machinery covering local government and schools and move quickly to jointly tackle important issues facing their members with the Local Government Association.
“Members covered by the National Joint Council for Local Government have the lowest pay in the public sector and have suffered significant attacks on their conditions of work in recent years.
“The unions will now move forward together to consult their members.”
