Workers in Al-Nasr Company for Clothing and Textiles (Capo) in Alexandria continued Wednesday their open strike and picketing within the company for the second consecutive day, Ikhwanweb reporters said.

This happened after the failure of negotiations between the company union and the representative of the Ministry of Manpower to reach a solution to the crisis because the company board chairman traveled outside the country.

 The workers refused to resume work until after the company gives them all their rights. The workers" strike began Tuesday in protest against management policies, the low level of wages and incentives, the deterioration of facilities, and delay of dividends for more than three years.

Workers demanded the need to achieve their legitimate demands which are increasing their salaries, and payment of 30% raise for all state employees, in addition to increasing the meal allowance from 43 pounds to 90 pounds.

They also demanded the intervention of the ministers of investment and manpower, especially to solve their problems. Large numbers of security forces have surrounded the Company, especially after the rest of the company"s workers joined their colleagues, who were up to 4500 workers. They shouted hostile slogans against the company management, which threatened them with dismissal and discounts if they continued to strike.


Saber Abul Fotouh, member of the parliamentary bloc of Muslim Brotherhood, submitted a question to the Prime Minister and Minister of Manpower regarding the strike which was made by the workers of Al Nasr Company. He asked them  to apply the 30% pay rise stipulated by the President of the Republic, like in other textile companies.


The MP pointed out that despite the gains of the company workers after the implementation of the Action Plan the administration insists on depriving workers of their rights.

The company management continues to appoint advisers, the salary of each exceeds ten thousand pounds, which leads to overall loss in the accounts of the Company, denying workers their rights.
