A nationwide strike will go on as planned next week, the Unions and Leagues of Land Transportation announced Thursday. The strike, to be held Thursday, Aug. 2, was announced a day after a warning strike took place in different parts of Lebanon, with the union ignoring a plea by caretaker Public Works and Transport Minister Youssef Fenianos to postpone the strikes until the first Cabinet session of the next government is held. Truck and taxi drivers are protesting what they say is inadequate government supervision of competition from non-Lebanese drivers.
