Electricite du Liban contract workers Thursday closed the company's Beirut headquarters and several south Lebanon branches to customers in a protest aimed at pressuring the government to make them full-time employees.EDL workers from the Sidon, Tyre and Deir Zahrani branches in the south also staged sit-ins demonstrating against the company's decision a day earlier to hire more contract workers instead of giving the existing temporary employees full-time status.In August, EDL extended its contract with service providers by four months, an extension that the contract workers have rejected.Since 2012, contract workers have been employed by private service providers KVA, BUS and NEU, companies brought on board to carry out EDL services.
