CAIRO: Workers in a Mahalla textiles factory have been awarded partial back-payments of their salaries a day after hundreds of workers protested in the streets of the Delta town.

Workers from the Aboul Seba’ factory chanted slogans against factory owner Ismail Aboul Seba’ on Wednesday after promises that they would be paid their outstanding salaries were not kept.

Mohamed Maree writes on his blog egytimes.org that “workers have forced the company to pay out salaries due on Sept.5 2009, meaning that they only have one other outstanding salary payment due to them.

“They have a promise from security bodies and company management that they will receive this salary payment after the Eid holiday, Maree continues.

Maree says however that a notice pinned up inside the factory announcing that all employees must take an obligatory 15-day unpaid holiday has left workers feeling uncertain about their future with the company.
