RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Civil servants in the West Bank went on strike on Monday in protest against court proceedings brought against union leader Bassam Zakarneh by a former PA labor minister, a union leader said.

Members of the civil servants' union staged a sit-in protest in front of a Ramallah court during a hearing against Zakarneh.

Former minister of labor Ahmad Majdalan filed a complaint against Zakarneh, accusing him of slander and defamation.

The union leader said that the charges are a "futile attempt to scare trade union activists," adding that the union will go on strike on Thursday if the PA does not fulfill its pledges on salary bonuses.
