Tunisia: The government can prevent the strike of January 17, 2019?


- Advertisment -

The Union general tunisienne du travail (UGTT) is actively preparing for its general strike scheduled for 17 January 2019, as well as for the period post-strike, and this in spite of the continuation of the dialogue with the government in order to defuse the tensions.

To be clear, this strike is likely to take place.

This is what was shown on Saturday 29 December, the assistant secretary general in charge of the coverage of social protection, health and safety professional, to the UGTT, who participated in the work of the administrative Commission of the regional Union of labor in Kebili.

He added that the escalation of tension reflects the failure of the government “is opposed to wage increases in the public service under the pretext of avoid any pressure from donor countries”.

This position reflects the dependence of the decision of tunisia to the directives from the outside, according to him.

While admitting that the salary increase is, whatever its amount, cannot preserve the purchasing power of civil servants, which has deteriorated in recent years, he points out that it enshrines the right of workers to rise along with the rest of beneficiaries.
