Employees of the National Weather Service have called off what could have been a nation-wide strike pending outcomes of a meeting with the Transport Secretary.
Representing the employees was Lawrence Aumora who said a verbal agreement was made this morning to address their salary grievances.
Following discussions with the Public Servants Reconciliation Attribution Tribunal, the National Weather Service now plans to put the nationwide strike on halt for two weeks.
They were promised this morning that their salary grievances of over eight years will be met by the first pay period of 2018.
On Sunday the National Weather Service issued a statement to stop all services by the close of business today.
These services include Weather Forecasting for both the Aviation Industry and the Public.
The Department of Transport has assured NWS employees that it will address this concern come January 3 2018.
But NWS staff say if that demand is not met, the planned strike will go ahead.
