Ogero employees threaten to strike over pay delay
A+ A-

BEIRUT: Employees of the state-run telecom provider, Ogero, staged a sit-in Wednesday to protest the delay in the payment of their salaries for the month of January by the Telecommunications Ministry. 

Hundreds of the Ogero employees gathered in front of the Telecommunications Ministry headquarters on Bank Street in Downtown Beirut at 5 p.m. and tried to break into the ministry offices but were prevented from entering by the security forces. 

The employees threatened to strike if their demands were not met. “This is the last time we will stage a sit-in; next time it will be different,” Ogero employee George Estephan was quoted saying by the National News Agency.
