Sidon public hospital employees strike, demanding raise
Employees of Sidon’s governmental hospital Wednesday held a demonstration in front of the entrance to the emergency wing, marking the second day of their latest strike to protest the delayed implementation of the salary scale law.
The protest was held in compliance with a decision from the Public Hospital Workers Syndicate in Lebanon, the state-run National News Agency reported.
The hospital’s employees have closed the hospital’s clinics repeatedly in routine strikes demanding a pay hike, but measures are consistently taken to keep the emergency room open.
