Labour Day: UTT reiterates call to implement union pluralism

� Secretary-General of the Tunisian Workers’ Union (UTT) Mehdi Kammoun reiterated on Tuesday call to the Head of the State, Prime Minister and Speaker of the House of Peoples’ Representatives (HPR) to respect and implement union pluralism, as stipulated in Tunisia’s 2014 Constitution.

In a statement to TAP during a worker rally staged by the UTT on the Labour Day, the unionist official pointed out the need to involve the UTT in the discussion of all the main national files.

The UTT will keep on militating in spite of its exclusion and marginalisation, he said, expressing astonishment at not being invited to represent his organisation at the Labour Day festivities, officially celebrated by the three presidents at the Culture City.

Kammoun estimated that the government’s success in achieving economic and social projects requires its openness on all organisations without exception to be able to get the country out of the crisis.

He described the economic situation as disastrous, given the deterioration of the purchasing power of most families and the middle class erosion, indicating that the only solution is to promote work and increase productivity of all sectors.

The UTT is against strikes and excessive demands, he specified.

Besides, the UTT’s press release published on the occasion, condemned the government’s policy and positions towards the UTT, denouncing its marginalisation and violation of its rights.

Several activists and UTT members gathered in front of UTT headquarters in Tunis, shouting slogans that call for the implementation of union pluralism.
