Indian Commercial Pilots Association (ICPA) on Sunday said it has withdrawn the strike notice given to the Air India management following the latter's assurance that all pending issues will resolved over the next two months.

"We had a successful meeting with the management following which we have withdrawn our strike call notice with immediate effect," ICPA General Secretary, R S Otaal, told PTI on Sunday night.

ICPA, the non executive pilot body of erstwhile Indian Airlines, had written a letter on November 2 to the NACIL Chairman and Managing Director Arvind Jadhav threatening to strike work from November 24, if the management did not resolve the long pending issues, including payment of their pending allowances.

However, after a reconciliatory meeting with the management on November 14 and then on November 20, the strike call was deferred for November 30.

"The management has assured that all our pending allowances will be cleared by February and rest of the issues will also be resolved," Otaal said.

The meeting lasted for more than eight hours, Otaal said, adding that Air India's General Manager (Operations) represented the management.
