Sources at the Ministry of Communications have said the minister reduced the salary of the CEO, his assistants and top managers so as to achieve justice within the company.
The minister thereby hopes the company’s workers end their strike.
The workers claim that they want the management to stop squandering public funds rather than raise their salaries, adding that they won’t cut off service to land lines during the strike.
They also said the management has tasked another company with the operator service, absolving themselves of problems faced by citizens when using it.
The strike entered its fourth day on Tuesday, with company workers in Alexandria and other cities joining their colleagues in Cairo to support them.
“We won’t stop until the board resigns,” said Khaled Morsy, a protester. “They have destroyed company services for the benefit of mobile phone companies.”
