Palestina - Public servants on strike and pressurised to return (2010)

The Public Employees Union accused Hamas of exerting various types of pressure on employees in Gaza to return to work during a strike in February as well as during other protests. On 15 February, tens of thousands of Palestinian officials had held a one-day strike to protest against a delay of two weeks in the payment of their wages. On 2 March, Prime Minister Salam Fayyad said that salaries would be paid on 5 March; however, on that day a further delay in the payment of salaries was reported as being due to Israel’s refusal to allow cash to be transferred and other difficulties.
