The workers at the Aden Port suspended on Wednesday their two-week strike after the Aden Ports Corporation reached an agreement with them.
According to informed sources at the Transport Ministry, the agreement called for suspending the strike, which closed the port, for two months, forming a committee on the demands of the workers and giving each worker YR100000.
"The sum will be given on condition it will be deducted from the workers' legal rights," the sources said.
Saba quoted executive director of the Aden Ports Corporation, Sami Fari, as saying the committee will draw up a salary structure in a week from the suspension of the strike.
"The suspension came despite the reservation of DP World because the workers care about the national interest and the port's reputation," he said, according to Saba.
Last week, Transport Minister, Waed Bathib, criticized the striking workers saying whatever their rights were right, the port should not have been closed.
The workers are demanding DP World to improve their work conditions including a pay rise after the workers at other ports it runs.
In 2008, Yemen signed an agreement with the UAE company to run and develop the Aden Port. When a power-sharing government took office after the 2011 turmoil, it criticized the deal and started practical steps to reconsider it.
