Workers at the Jawhara Ceramics factory owned by detained businessman and former National Democractic Party leader Ahmed Ezz went on strike today in the industrial city of Sadat in Menoufiya governorate.

They are protesting low wages and requesting the formation of a union committee to defend their rights.

They have asked that the minimum wage be set at LE1200, that a union to represent their force of 2,500 workers be set up, that they receive an hour’s rest for lunch and medical care for dependents.
