The Air Transport Union took part in a meeting of the General Labor Union Executive Board in Lebanon.
In a statement, the Union pledged to join the nationwide strike scheduled for Wednesday, February 8th. They urged those concerned to act swiftly to strengthen the state and prevent a more dire situation.
They emphasized that the strike must not affect air traffic and protested the poor living conditions in employment, education, and services.
This strike will involve several sectors including the land transport sector, independent businesses’ unions, governmental hospitals, and teachers’ leagues.
They are calling on the government to assume their responsibilities. The strike is a show of solidarity for the transportation sector and is expected to escalate if their demands are not met.
The nationwide strike is poised to have a major impact and bring attention to the grievances of the participating sectors.
