A threatened work slowdown scheduled to start on January 26th that was to act as a prelude to a systems-wide strike by pilots that threatened to eventually stop all Garuda Indonesia flights has been narrowly averted by a series of emergency talks with the airline's pilot association. Just days before the work slowdown was expected to cause delays to passengers of between one and five hours the national carrier's management and pilots have agreed to a round of closed-door negotiations with both sides promising an agreement by a February 4th deadline.
Responding to a request from Indonesia's Minister of Manpower and Transmigration, Jacob Nuwa Wea, the Pilots' Association agreed not to commence their slow down as the Minister ordered both sides in the dispute to the negotiating table. Should the eleventh hour talks fail, the Minister stated the he would personally mediate the ongoing talks.
