Some 1,000 workers from the Egyptian-American Steel company in Sadat City sat in for the second day on Monday over wages, health insurance and meal incentives.

Temporary workers at Helwan Steel Mills protested.

Egypt’s Iron and Steel workers last week issued a statement of demands including the confiscation of private companies to be run by “a new management by workers and technicians”.

They also called for a “workers’ monitoring committee in all workplaces monitoring production, prices, distribution and wages” and a “general assembly of all sectors and political trends of the people to develop a new constitution and elect real popular committees”.
