Workers at Beirut Airport's Meteorology Department went on strike Saturday to demand promotions and fair treatment.A source at Beirut's Rafik Hariri International Airport said the department's 30 employees will go on strike daily until the end of the month if their demands are not met. The source said all but two of the protestors had been working for over 20 years at the department as fourth rank government employees. "Monday we will address the Civil Service Council again," Chehabeddine said, calling for patience and an end to the strike.However, he said the decree submitted for the Meteorology Department workers would promote them to a higher class within the same rank, and not to third rank.
