Lebanese workers are still on strike in demand of better salary

Workers of the data, internet and broadband services company in Lebanon, Ogero, are still on strike demanding an improvement in their salaries in the face of the impact of the economic crisis.

The employees’ union stopped its work since Tuesday and asked the entity to calculate an increase in salaries on the exchange rate at the height of the high income of the telecommunications sector in the country.

According to the National News Agency, the implementation of the strike put out of service the Ogero centers in the towns of Hamra and Nahr Beirut in the capital, as well as Damour and Beiteddine in the Chouf region, Saida and Nabatiyeh, in the south of the country.

The publication itself added that the paralysis of other company establishments is expected in the next few hours, which threatens to completely stop the Internet and communications service in Lebanon.

On Monday, the representatives of the Ogero workers unanimously decided to carry out a general strike in all sectors and stop maintenance and operations in the authority’s centers in Lebanese territory without exception.

During an emergency meeting, the union discussed the worsening of the economic and financial crisis and its repercussions on the health, education, food and basic needs of the inhabitants.

Ogero is the executive arm of the Lebanese Ministry of Communications and the basic infrastructure agency for telecommunications networks.
