Government lawyers at National Agency for Legal Aid have decided to end their strike after a meeting with the civil service chief and solicitor general on Monday.

The lawyers last week proceeded on a sit-down strike over low pay and the poor condition of work at NALA.

The lawyers complained that their salaries were low compared with that of those who work at the ministry of justice – and that the only car they use was so bad the female lawyers were having their skirts torn by it.

But in a new development on Wednesday, the lawyers have decided to apply the brake on their strike following a fruitful meeting.

The meeting took place on Monday involving the lawyers, the secretary general and head of the civil service and the solicitor general, one person familiar with the issue said. The government has given them assurance that their demands would be addressed, the person added.
