Sidon's municipal employees and Ogero workers carried out separate strikes Thursday, claiming to be among the numerous public departments that have not received pay rises in line with a new law. The municipal employees demand a raise by three salary grades, which was granted to all members of public administrations in article 17 of the salary law passed last year. The strike reportedly paralyzed the Sidon municipalities' various departments and was attended by Sidon Mayor Mohammed Saudi.
