CAIRO: Several hundred administrative workers with Egypt’s Suez Canal Authority are threatening to go on a hunger strike if their demands for promotions are not met.

The workers were protesting Sunday at the SCA’s headquarters in the city of Ismailiya. They say they have been getting the run-around from canal executives and the military officials in the area. The military had promised to raise their demands with the SCA if they disperse.

The workers said they may launch a hunger strike on Monday because SCA officials are ignoring their legal right to promotions after they received degrees while on the job.

Labor unrest surged after Egypt’s uprising ousted the country’s longtime president. Some had worried that the demonstrations would halt canal operations.
