Labor protests continue in Cairo and other governorates

Cairo and six other governorates on Tuesday witnessed more than ten labor protests, demanding better wages, pensions and the removal of “corrupt” managers from their workplaces.

Pensioners of the Helwan Engineering Industries Company said they were not paid their full pensions and threatened to continue protesting until they were.

Also, former workers of the Beni Suef Cement Company, which was sold to a French company in 2006, staged protests for the same purpose.

In Beheira, more than 200 temporary workers of the Ministry of Agriculture demanded permanent appointments to the ministry.

In Alexandria, doctors and nurses of the Alexandria University Hospital demanded the removal of the hospital’s administration for failing to meet their financial demands.
