Union Isotita on Tuesday said their prison guard members will continue their indefinite strike on Wednesday, with a protest planned outside the presidential palace.
The protest will take place from 7.30 to 11.30 on Wednesday morning, according to a written statement by the union.
The union members announced they would be going on indefinite strike on Monday over pay disputes, claiming they had been promised pay rises by the justice ministry.
They are also protesting after the finance ministry rejected a request for a special allowance to be paid to prison guards even after it was recommended by the justice ministry.
“As can be seen in the footage from today’s event in front of the Ministry of Finance, the morale of the strikers is high and we continue united and strong in asserting our just demands”, the announcement concluded.
