Ayitono-Goshi said that the suspension followed the intervention of respected personalities who pledged to pursue the union’s grievances to the appropriate authorities.
“We have been on strike for seven months now, but when the new members of the governing council came on board, they requested that we should appeal to the nationalheadquarters of the union to suspend the strike.“They also assured that they will continue with the negotiation from where it stopped,” he said.
