Unpaid workers to have strike time discounted from payments

LA LÍNEA (Agencies) Mayor Gemma Araujo announced yesterday that once the Personnel Department gets back to normal after several weeks of strikes by municipal employees demanding payment of back wages, the Council will discount those days. The start of the strike, called 'permanent assembly' officially, began on December 5th, according to the Council and ends when the staff get back to work. Araujo also pointed out that the emergency €500,000 for payment of at least part of the debt promised by the provincial authority had not yet been received. Protests are due to continue.
