Hundreds of workers at Orascom Construction and Industries (OCI), are continuing with their sit- since last Thursday. The workers say they've been instructed today to empty the location of the company on the Cairo-Alexandria road by next Monday.
The workers, according to the Center for Trade Union and Workers' Services, a lobar NGO, fear the liquidation of the factory, amid promises by the management to relocate them to the two other branches of the firm in 6 October City and Suez. One worker who spoke to Ahram Online on condition of anonymity however expressed concerns re the management's offer, since the two other branches are expected to be liquidated too.
OCI management could not be reached for a comment.
