Classes resume at Lebanese University after three-week strike

The professors at the Lebanese University (LU) announced the end of their weeks-long strike yesterday. They have been on strike since April 9 demanding a salary increase, according to

. The Minister of Education and Higher Education Marwan Hamadeh supports the professors and will work towards implementing a law to grant them a three-scale salary increase in line with the implementation of the salary scale law. The students were also protesting and calling for classes to be resumed. They have not been able to go to class for almost three weeks, and they have to prepare for their final exams. Although classes have resumed, the students are still dealing with a lot of stress. This is not the first time that LU students miss classes because of strikes. We hope that the problem will be solved as soon as possible to serve justice for both the professors and the students.
