After speaking with the National Labour Commission, the striking Metro Mass Transit employees decided to call off their strike.
On the NLC’s recommendation, the workers who have been on a sit-down strike since October 12 consented to go back to work so that the parties that are at odds can negotiate a settlement.
Due of the delay in paying their two months’ paychecks, the employees put down their tools.
Passengers of Metro Mass Transit were left stranded around the nation, which eventually led to the NLC’s involvement.
Additionally, they demanded the Managing Director be fired because they believe he is to fault for their current predicament.
In response to the calls, managers at Metro Mass Transit said that logistical limitations were to blame for the company’s difficulties.
It has claimed that it only has 187 buses nationally and fails to make enough money to pay its 2,000 employees.
