CAIRO: A strike by employees at the Egyptian Indian Polyester Company (EIPET) in Ain Sokhna ended Thursday after the company agreed to meet their demands, said Egyptian Union of Independent Syndicates spokesperson Mohamed Zakriya al-Gamal.

In a press statement, Gamal said the company has resumed work, noting that an administrative decision would be issued on Sunday with an agreement on employees’ full demands from the company board of directors, following their 12-day strike.

On Wednesday, representatives of the company employees, the Egyptian Petrochemicals Holding Company and the EIPET board of directors met to find common ground between the company and the employees, O News Agency reported.

The employees previously requested the Minister of Petroleum and the Prime Minister interfere to solve their crisis, and employees filed a report against the company administration regarding their legal stance, Youm7 reported.

The employees’ demands were to receive their financial dues and bonuses, and not to be suspended from work, in addition to other demands that they presented to the company administration a few months ago.
