No Grace Period to New Government - GCLU
The president of the General Confederation of Labor Unions, (GCLU), Ghassan Ghosn, said that his organization will not give a grace period to the new government. “The series of sit-ins and protests will begin early next month as already determined by the leadership of the GCLU,” Ghosn said. “Our demands are very clear and they deal with the daily lives of people. There is no point in further discussions over them.” Ghosn said that the Prime Minister designate has declared that he is aware of our grievances, and we welcome his declaration. “Our contact with him will be restricted to addressing those grievances and not aimed at starting a new dialogue over them,” he said. “We are seeking immediate decisions to address such urgent issues as the price of fuel, the rise in food prices, and in the cost of living as a whole,” he said. Those issues have already been discussed over and again. “We don’t need further discussions. We need action to be taken,” he said.
