RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Civil servants will strike on Wednesday as part of ongoing action against the late payment of salaries, the workers union head said Sunday.
Bassam Zakarneh said that the situation for workers is getting worse. In addition to the strike, Thursday is an Islamic holiday to mark Isra and Miraj.
The union will also hold protest action on Monday in front of the offices of the council of ministers across the West Bank, the union chief said.
All future strike action will depend on the Palestinian Authority's response to paying worker salaries, Zakarneh added, with a meeting being held next Sunday to discuss the issue of wages.
