Lebanon: Transport workers will be on strike next Wednesday

Lebanese transport trade unions have declared that next Wednesday will be a “day of anger” to protest against the decrease in salaries and the increase in fuel prices. The president of the Land Transport Trade Union said that the protest odes not aim at disrupting the daily life of citizens but articulating the demands of the sector’s professionals to the authorities. The trade unionist recalled that transport prices have reached unprecedented levels, whether for private vehicles or for public transport, because of the increase in fuel prices for more than 12 times in a single year.
