First of many Fridays planned for protests
The General Confederation of Labor Unions (GCLU) has called workers of the public administrations and private sector to strike on Friday, January 4.
The call for the strike was anonymously initiated on social media. It aims to protest against the country’s living conditions and the delay in formation of a Cabinet.
“The Cabinet formation shouldn’t be a request, but a constitutional duty,” said Bechara Al Asmar, Secretary General of GCLU.
The Economic Associations announced that they didn’t call for the protest and refused to support it. “The strike will bring more losses, especially before the Arab Economic Summit taking place in mid-January,” according to a statement.
