Rafik Hariri University Hospital Employees to Stage Sit-in
Employees and staff at the governmental Rafik Hariri University Hospital, the leading medical facility fighting coronavirus, plan to stage a sit-in on Friday to protest nonpayment of their rights.
The committee of employees and contract workers said in a statement: “Employees and staff at the hospital have suffered and sacrificed since the opening of the hospital, especially during the spread of coronavirus, but until this moment they have not received their full rights such as the (salaries based on the 2017) wage scale law.”
They said the entire public sector including other governmental hospital benefited from the wage scale except the RHUH.
The employees accused the “administration and related authorities of unacceptable negligence and underestimation of their rights.”
The sit-in will be held before noon at 10:00 a.m.
