More than three thousand employees and worker in the Labour University in Cairo staged an open sit-in protesting at the board"s decision of suspending paying their dues.


  The strikers refused to stop the sit-in till Hassan Mogawer, the Labour Union chief, arrived at the place of the sit-in and issued a written a pledge to address their 29 demands topped by suspending labour law no. 24 that enabled the current board to suspend aid, treatment fees and to cancel university"s contracts with hospitals that treat its employees .

It is worth mentioning that this is the third sit-in of such a kind carried out by workers in one week. Students have previously staged several sit-ins calling for stopping the security intervention in running their universities, presaging a disaster because sit-ins have become the only available means for the Egyptians to attain their rights under a repressive regime that violates simplest human rights.
