EMPLOYEES from El Ejido’s municipal services company Elsur are on hunger strike over unpaid wages.
Staff began a sit-in protest at the San Isidro Church on Tuesday but now they are refusing to eat until they are paid for work they did in November and December.
It is thought 50 employees are owed around 4,000 euros each.
The protest comes amid reports that Elsur plans to lay off 370 employees.
While no agreement was reached between staff and management, employees have been given permission to protest on certain dates, starting next Monday.
