Egypt's Public Transport Workers Continue Strike in Alexandria

Alexandria — Public transport workers continued their strike in Alexandria on Monday for the third day in a row, an eyewitness said.

The workers asked for minimum wages, annual raises, end of service benefits for those who have retired, among other things.

The eyewitness added that the strike has led to traffic conjunctions in many areas, as hundreds of workers gathered chanting for better pay and management conditions.

The protesters prevented bus drivers and workers who did not want to join the strike from working, insisting on their demands.
