Public Employees Suspend Strike
RAMALLAH, September 19, 2013 (WAFA) – The Union of Public Employees Thursday said it has cancelled a call for a two-day general strike next week.
The union has called for strike days every week to protest government failure to enforce agreements reached with the union over the years.
It said in a statement that the government has decided to honor all agreements and has set up a committee to lay down a mechanism for implementation of these agreements.
Bassam Zakarneh, head of the union, said the board will meet again on October 2 to evaluate the results of the talks with the government.
