Union action

Al-Akhbar newspaper reports that the General Labour Union will hold a protest at the government's failure to deal with the hike in bread and fuel prices.

The call for action comes after the price of bread hit LL2000 (£1) — see story below. The union federation is concerned abut the continuing impoverishment of workers in Lebanon, the rate of unemployment and rampant inflation.
