The Council of the Syndicate of Employees and Users of the two mobile companies in Lebanon sent a message to the employees on the eve of the start of the open strike carried out by the employees of the two companies, Alfa and Touch, starting from tomorrow, Monday, until the demands for the implementation of the collective work contract and the payment of dues and the commitment of my mobile company to preserve the employees’ earnings are fulfilled. From what came in the letter: We and you hand in hand to prevent any infringement on our earnings, hand in hand to confirm that we will not accept anything other than what is our right and stipulated in the work contract. We will not back down from defending our right to health and social coverage. From here, we and you will be the impenetrable dam in the face of anyone who tries to erode these rights. The presidency added: We tried our best not to reach this stage, whether through negotiation or through good mediators, but unfortunately we did not reach the desired results. Therefore, we affirm that starting from tomorrow, Monday, the first step in fortifying our rights through the implementation of the work contract begins, and certainly we will all live up to our hopes and we will all be responsible. Here we must thank all employees for their support. The letter concluded: We affirm that this fateful stage calls upon the defense with full force to preserve the work contract, especially since there are serious attempts to violate it and deprive you of your earnings, and that any retreat, even in a small part, will lead to more erosion of rights, which will negatively affect our health and social protection and our families.
