National Insurance Institute (NII) branches all over the country remained closed on Thursday after its employees decided to hold a one-day warning strike.
NII employees demanded for its management to resume negotiations with the government for additional manpower, better salaries and working conditions.

The Institute claimed that the recent decisions to add departments for senior citizens, the disabled, unemployment will add additional strain on its workers who are already “collapsing under the overload of work.”

The strike was decided upon on Wednesday night with the full backing of the State Employees Union and will possibly worsen during next week, NII employees said.
