RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- The government employees union has failed to reach an agreement with the government to end an escalating strike, the union chief said Tuesday.
Bassam Zakarneh said that an emergency meeting was called at 11 a.m. on Wednesday to discuss the government's refusal to meet the demands of the union.
Zakarneh added that the union’s council and employees were "fuming," and they will discuss further escalatory steps including an open strike if a resolution is not found.
