The Union Coordination Committee Wednesday said that it will go ahead with its planned strike next week, which coincides with a national dialogue session that is to take place in Downtown Beirut's Nejmeh Square as part of an effort to press Parliament to endorse a wage hike.However the strike scheduled for Oct. 20 was called off by the UCC and replaced with a protest in front of the Court of Accounts in Beirut's Hamra area, a move that was praised by Education Minister Elias Bou Saab.However, the League of High School Teachers didn't abide by the UCC's decision and continued with Tuesday's strike despite Bou Saab's threats to apply a public servants law against violators who participate in the strike.
