Euro News

George al-Hajj, head of the bank employees’ union in Lebanon stated on Wednesday that the employees will not return to work if the bare minimum of security is not provided. 

This comes after an intense week of bank raids in the country.

Al-Hajj said there would be a meeting today to discuss the strike of bank workers. 

Al-Hajj spoke about this issue on local news, where he mentioned that if the security measures were not put in place, the strike should continue.

“It is the responsibility of the Lebanese state to protect the citizens, and we are among them,” he stressed.

He noted that the bank employees are in no way affiliated with the owners of the banks or the Association of Banks and that they did not neglect their responsibilities. 

Declaring that the employees are not responsible for the banking crisis in the country, al-Hajj said, “We are not responsible for the collapse that occurred in the banking sector.”
