Mali: Orange workers strike over shareholding

Workers at Orange Mali have concluded a two-day stay-away to press home their demand for a revaluation of their shareholding in the telecoms company.

The strike, which began 20 November 2019 and ended 21 November 2019, was in response to the company’s failure to increase the workers’ shareholding in the company from 4.5% to 10%.
