If their demands won’t be met by Thursday, July 21st, they’ll be joining the other public sector employees in their open strike, which is currently in its fourth week.

On Tuesday, the heads of units at the Public Finance Directorate also announced their open strike requesting their salaries to be adjusted based on the LL 8,000/USD exchange rate.

According to NNA, a “General Assembly took place in presence of Caretaker Minister of Information, Ziad Al-Makary, Information Ministry’s Director General Dr. Hassan Falha, and heads of Ministry’s units, departments, and directorates.”

During the Assembly, a committee was formed by some NNA and Radio Lebanon employees.

The Minister hailed the work of the ministry’s employees and supported their decision: “The strike is a legitimate right to deliver their righteous outcry.”
