Labour calls off strike with conditions

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

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."
