Site workers aged between 45 and 55 years will begin from January 9 a series of protests, after the “government’s silence and neglect of their claims which consist in the implementation of the October 20, 2020 agreement and the procedures for tenure or voluntary departure,” said member of their coordination Imen Azri.
She stressed in a statement to TAP Sunday, that the Ministry of Social Affairs and the Prime Ministry have neglected the demands of site workers who had observed a sit-in at the Government Square in Kasbah on December 12 to demand the regularization of their situation, saying that no government party has responded to their claims.
The member of the coordination said a rally will be held on January 9 at the Kasbah Square, adding it will be the first in a series of protests, before starting a sit-in at the Government Square or in front of the Ministry of Social Affairs and possibly a hunger strike until their demands are met.
Azri said a number of site workers aged between 45 and 55 have chosen to leave voluntarily demanding payment of their dues. She denied any official information on the government’s orientation towards implementing the mandatory departure of this category of site workers.
