BEIRUT: The union for Electricite du Liban's workers called for a strike Tuesday, urging Parliament to resolve the salary scale debate in its next legislative session.

The union announced protests for Thursday at all of EDL centers across the country and invited members to protest in front of Parliament.

Union officials said that "employees and users have a right to the salary scale," stressing the importance of resolving the controversial issue in Parliament’s session Thursday.

Thursday's sit-in and demonstration will exclude workers from production plants, the Directorate of Transport Coordination and personnel in the main switching stations. According to the statement, no maneuvers are to be carried out on the transport network without the approval of the union.
