Minister of Public Works and Transportation, Youssef Fenianos, on Thursday held talks with Head of the General Labor Confederation, Beshara Asmar, accompanied by a delegation of Beirut seaport workers.
The meeting focused on the ailing environmental condition at the facility, due to the mounting piles of garbage stacked at the port's northeastern entrance.
"We notified Minister Fenianos that the GLC and the workers will declare strike if the crisis remains unsolved," Asmar told reporters following the meeting.
"The Minister carried out the necessary contacts with the concerned sides, who confirmed to him that waste will be picked up as of next week," he added.
