Tadamon: New strike in Shebeen el-Kom after management punish workers

The Indo Drama in Shebeen el-Kom continues... I received a report that workers at the Indorama textile factory are on strike since 11 am today after four of their colleagues was transfered to the company branch in Alexandria, probably as a punishment after the previous 11-day strike that ended with a victory for the workers on March 16.

Update: Here's a report in arabic from Tadamon, saying that the strike begun after negotiations between of the local union and the management failed. The company has refused to cancel the transfer decision so far.
