Mayor of Gharyan Youssuf Bidairi took part, Sunday, in an open sit-in by the workers of the General Company for Cleaning Services, Gharyan branch, in front of the Ministry of Local Government in Tripoli to demand payment of their delayed salaries.

Mayor Bidairi said he joined the sit-in to discuss the salary problems of the company with the Undersecretary of the Ministry of Local Government. He underlined that the failure of the ministry to provide services has burdened his municipality which lacks budget.

"Centralization is still there, the municipal council staff has not been paid for more than sixteen months." He noted.

The General Company for Cleaning Services, Gharyan branch, is still directly affiliated with the Ministry of Local Government and its workers have not received their salaries for seven months so far.
