The Joint action Committee (JAC) of Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) employees announced to end its strike against the proposed privatisation of the national flag carrier and asked employees to resume flight operations across the country with immediate effect.
Addressing a press conference on Tuesday evening, JAC chairman Sohail Baloch announced the decision to end the eight-day long strike and requested “all airline workers to work with full dedication and pay no heed to anyone trying to disrupt flight operations”.
“A kind friend advised us to call off the strike,” Baloch said.
The assurance given to us by the government to resolve issues is enough to make us call off the strike, he added.
The JAC chairman said he will meet Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif in Lahore on Tuesday (today).
“We hope that the meeting with Punjab chief minister will be satisfactory and beneficial both for the government and the employees of PIA,” said Baloch.
