Print workers to join strike

The Executive Council of the Federation of Trade Unions and users of paper-based industries in Lebanon will call its members out on 24 January.

The union said in a statement it is joining the strike, "because of the approach adopted by the dominant power, which has led to the impoverishment of the majority of Lebanese, high public debt, rising prices and a constant interruption of electricity supplies."

The head of the market traders association, Hussein Tawfiq, says his members will heed the strike call. Tawfiq slammed, "the policy of arbitrariness and injustice of the government" in the treatment of traders and transport workers.
