Shebin Textiles workers protest while Security Forces in Hamoul thwarts another

Workers submitted complaints to the employment office in which they asserted their rights to the 5 month bonus in the production process which they had not been paid since last year.

In a related story, Security forces in the Kafr El-Sheikh governorate thwarted a protest which included workers from the Delta Sugar Factory in Hamoul. The protest was scheduled to take place at 3 pm in between shifts.

The workers were protesting to the 20% reduction in their bonuses after they were informed by fax from the company’s management in Cairo .

Mohamed Mustafa, a worker, informed Ikhwanweb that the company’s security guards had informed state Security Services who threatened to arrest the workers if they insisted on organizing the protest.
