The 12 labour unions striking over the mangement of their tier two
pension fundshave called off their almost two-week old strike.
According to the agitated unions, some of their members have been
served with an ex parte order to do so.
The court ruled in favour of government last Friday but the unions
said they had not been served and would continue to strike.
But at a press briefing on Tuesday, the Forum for Public Sector
Registered Occupational Pension Schemes said they would comply with
the court order.
"We are law abiding citizens and have decided to obey the court order
from today. But we want to re-emphasize that the suspension of the
strike does not mark the end of the struggle," they insisted.
The Forum however stated that it "regrets government's exercise of bad
faith in obtaining an ex parte order on the Forum which was in the
public domain and generating media speculations and malicious press
statements but was not served on the unions and associations until
about 5pm on Monday."
