The four-day standoff between Casino du Liban's administration and expelled employees took a new twist Friday with the resignation of two members of the board of directors.Hicham Naser, another member from the casino's board of directors, resigned as well, according to media sources.He also called on the representatives of both sides to meet Tuesday at the Labor Ministry to discuss the fate of the employees. But the striking employees insisted that they will not call off the strike and reopen the casino until the management reinstates all the fired workers.
