AMMAN — Jordanian Electric Power Company (JEPCO) employees continued their strike for the fourth day on Sunday after negotiations between the Electricity Workers Union (EWU) and JEPCO administration reached a deadlock.

EWU President Ali Hadid said the strike was legal and called on the Labour Ministry to protect the workers’ interests.

The striking employees are demanding a full month’s salary as an end of service compensation for every year of employment.

They also want all employees to be treated on an equal footing, in terms of leave and medical insurance benefits.
