UNRWA-employees-declare-one-day-strike-in-Gaza The union of workers for the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) declared on Wednesday a one-day strike in the Gaza Strip to protest cuts to aid and services.
The strike came in protest against the UNRWA’s scaling-down of its services.The union accused the UNRWA administration of not filling in nearly 450 vacant teaching positions at UNRWA schools.
The announcement comes less than a month after the union staged a temporary strike in the occupied Palestinian territory, Lebanon, Syria, and Jordan to protest abnormally low salaries and severe staff shortages.
