Gulf Air has informed Gulf Air Trade Union (Gatu) officials of its decision to suspend its compulsory retirement scheme following the success of the Manama-based airline's restructuring programme, Gulf Daily News has reported. "We're told that agreements have been made in the meeting by Labour Ministry assistant under-secretary for labour affairs Dr Mohammed Al Ansari," said Gatu spokesman. Mohammad Mahdi. "The following points have been agreed upon - suspension of the compulsory retirement offer, re-opening of the Voluntary Retirement Scheme (VRS) and the cases of the 33 fired staff will be reviewed," said Mahdi.
