The president of the general confederation of transport Bassem Tleiss announced a strike in the transport sector scheduled for next Wednesday, after a meeting of the various unions comprising it, “provided that the dignity of any citizen is not compromised “. The terms of this strike will be announced next Tuesday.
He thus denounced the current illegal practices that would currently take place in the mechanical services, calling on the Ministry of the Interior to force Lebanese drivers to pay the fees without going through this service. It is, according to him, to “guarantee the pensions of workers and all those concerned in a way that makes things easier”, without being “humiliated or insulted”
Bassem Tleiss also discussed the increase in fuel prices and the introduction of a new twice-weekly pricing. He thus denounces the fact that the population is taken hostage by companies importing fuel.
