NNA - Public schools contract teachers staged a sit-in this Thursday at Riad El-Solh Square, in conjunction with the joint parliamentary committees’ session, to request "the granting of their full rights and an end to the maltreatment and injustice done to them."

The sit-in was attended by President of the General Labor Confederation, Bechara Asmar who delivered a statement in which he uttered "support for all the righteous demands of the teachers."
"Officials ought to listen to citizens' pleas," he said, assuring that rendering teachers full-timers is of utmost importance.
