interest of marginalised groups Tabboubi calls on Chahed to take urgent measures taking into consideration

Secretary General of the Tunisian General Labour Union (UGTT) Noureddine Tabboubi, on Thursday, reiterated the labour organisation’s support to the various peaceful protests against price increases, deterioration of purchasing power and rise in the rate of poverty and unemployment.

However, the UGTT rejects any night-time protest that degenerates into acts of violence and vandalism damaging public and private property, said Tabboubi.

Speaking at the 9th Congress of the Regional Labour Union (URT) of Ariana, Tabboubi said he had a meeting with Prime Minister Youssef Chahed on Wednesday and called for speeding up making political decisions that take into consideration marginalised groups strongly affected by the 2018 Finance Act.

The union leader also called on the Prime Minister to announce, in the coming hours, an increase in the SMIG and allowances granted to families in need as well as derisory pensions that do not exceed in several cases 70 dinars.

Tabboubi also pointed to the need to give more importance to young people who are dropping out of school.

Following the meeting of the Union’s national executive committee held on Thursday, a series of proposals will be announced to preserve the country from any danger, said the same source.

At the same time, Tabboubi called on the various political parties to prioritise the country’s interest and to assume their responsibilities, particularly in this current situation, deemed very difficult.
