Electricite Du Liban contract workers Thursday asked the company's management to hold direct talks with them to resolve the weeklong standoff, hours after EDL Chairman Kamal Hayek warned of a nationwide electricity crisis because of the ongoing protests.Protesters are demanding full-time status at the state-run electricity company for all of the approximately 1,600 contract workers. Hayek, along with dozens of EDL employees, headed to the EDL headquarters in Mar Mikhael in line with the company's recent decision to resume work, but contract workers once again prevented anyone from entering the premises. Hayek also warned that the protests could extend to other public sectors that employ contract workers.
