UGTT S-G calls on political leaders and parties to stay away from overbidding and pompous media discourses

Secretary-General of the Tunisian General Labour Union (UGTT) Noureddine Taboubi, on Saturday, called on all political leaders and parties to stay away from overbidding and pompous media discourses that do not serve the interest of the country at all.

He also called for all parties to mobilise efforts to serve the interest of the country and to reveal the truth to the Tunisian people, he added in Sfax, on the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the events of August 5, 1947.

“With the support of all components of civil society and progressive democratic forces, the trade union confederation is committed to blocking all opportunists,” stressed Taboubi.

“We are in a position to build a modern and prosperous Tunisia if we invest in human potential and take into account our specificity and our material capacities,” he said.

On this occasion, a workers’ rally led by Taboubi and UGTT former secretary-general Houcine Abassi was organized, in front of the headquarters of the Sfax Regional Labour Union, with the participation of members of the executive committee.

They went to the cemetery of the martyrs, where they recited the Fatiha and laid a wreath.

The commemoration of the 70th anniversary of the August 5, 1947 events began Friday at the headquarters of the URT of Sfax, with a cultural exhibition dedicated to these events.
