PA workers in Yatta to strike over unpaid wages

Feb. 17, 2013 1:18 P.M. (Updated: Feb. 18, 2013 10:15 A.M.)
HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Palestinian Authority employees in the municipality of Yatta, Hebron suspended work on Sunday in protest against the late payment of salaries, a union said.

Mousa al-Hadar, chairman of Yatta's employees union, told Ma'an that workers in the municipality have not been paid for seven months.

The union will hold a protest Monday in front of the PA finance ministry to demand that they provide Yatta municipality with nearly 9 million shekels ($2.4 million) of overdue budget transfers.
