200 Employees Stages Demonstration [Archives:2001/04/Local News]

January 22 2001

Around 200 employees of the General Water and Sanitation Authority staged a demonstration for the Cabinet office, asking for their salaries, which have not been paid to them for two months.
Demonstrators complained in a letter to the PM Dr. Eryani about the deteriorating situation of the authority due to financial and administrative affairs, said to be due to separating offices of Sanaa, Aden and Hodeidah from the main head office in Sanaa, subsequently stopping the 10% support the main office used to receive from revenues of these sub-offices.
They protested about the general authority not being able to pay salaries of employees and objecting to the authority not submitting the insurance fees that the authority takes from the 600 employees salaries to pay the General Pension and Insurance Authority for around 2 years.
