For the second consecutive day, workers of Al Ezz Ceramics and Porcelain Company continue their sit-in, awaiting negotiations with the company’s management to fulfil their demands.

Roughly 600 of the company’s 1800 workers started a sit-in yesterday, demanding the administration stop delaying the cash payments due to them from their profit share; for permanent employment of several hundred employees; as well as reinstating two field allowances that were cancelled before.

The company, which is owned by Ahmed Ezz, a prominent figure in Mubarak’s regime currently facing corruption charges, has shut down operation of the factory fearing physical damages to the production lines. 

The protesting workers have formed a committee to negotiate with the management and call for the support from all national civil movements in Egypt.
