Foreign Ministry staffers resume their labor strike, after freezing the protest for several months to allow for negotiations with the government.

Representatives announce “sanctions,” meaning some services will likely be halted.

Foreign Ministry representatives blame the Finance Ministry for “procrastinating.”

“We thought this was all behind us, but the Finance Ministry is interpreting our good will as weakness,” officials at the Foreign Ministry say.

The Foreign Ministry employees have been battling for better working conditions.

The sanctions have caused major disruptions to services such as renewing passports and acquiring other travel documents.
