The government in Cote d'Ivoire has called on state employees to end their strike. It's vowed to declare the industrial action illegal, and take appropriate measures. State workers are demanding pay rises and the settlement of bonuses owed in arrears. They're also opposing a pension reform implemented in 2012. The reform increases the retirement age from 55 to 60, and even 65 for higher ranked staff.
