The stalemate at Warrnambool City Council has ended, with an agreement over pay reached.
Australian Services Union (ASU) members at the council seeking a wage increase of 2 per cent or $30 a week - whichever is greater - introduced work bans after negotiations stalled.
However, it was revealed on Friday the bans would be lifted on Monday.
"ASU members at Warrnambool City Council are pleased that the council has listened to their reasonable demands and has reached an agreement with the union," ASU organiser Dave Walmsley said.
Details of the deal, which will go to a formal vote, were not released.
"We want to thank the Warrnambool community for their patience during this period of disruption," Mr Walmsely said.
Council's chief executive officer Peter Schneider said common ground had been reached with the ASU.
"All parties to the enterprise agreement, including the ASU, Professionals Australia, the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Federation and council will return to the bargaining table in order to provide in-principle support to an agreement that will be put to all staff for a vote."
A month ago the ASU said Warrnambool City Council's offer of a 2 per cent increase was not enough.
Australian Services Union branch secretary Lisa Darmanin said at the time Warrnambool City Council employees were determined to get a fair pay rise for the lowest paid workers.
