Railway workers at the workshop in Kom Abu Radi in al-Wasta went on strike on Monday, demanding the implementation of earlier promises of increased monthly incentives, al-Youm al-Sabi3 reports. According to the report, clashes took place between the workers and central security forces as they gathered in the station in al-Wasta, preventing some trains from moving. One officer and more than ten workers were wounded. Despite this, the strike continued on Wednesday. A meeting was held with the manager of the company for railway services on Wednesday, where he agreed to implement some of the demands of the workers. No union officials took part in the meeting, according to the workers.
