Streik der Zementarbeiter erfolgreich
Das meiste Geld das ihnen zusteht wird ausbezahlt - das ist das Ergebnis des dreitägigen Sitzstreiks auf dem Gelände der Hellwan-Zementfabrik, während dem die Belegschaft die Werkstore geschlossen hielt. Nachdem ein erstes Treffen am Montag zwar eine Art Übereinkunft zwischen Unternehmensleitung, Ministerium und Gewerkschaften gebracht hatte, das die Arbeiter aber nicht akzeptierten, wurde die positive Entscheidung des italienischen Unternehmens auf einem weiteren Treffen am Dienstagabend gefällt. Der (englische) Bericht "Cement Hellwan factories workers still sit-in" des CTUWS vom 21. März 2006
