UGTT to propose urgent measures to reform social security funds (Bouali Mbarki)

The Tunisian General Labour Union (UGTT) will propose urgent measures to reform social security funds, UGTT Deputy Secretary-General Bouali Mbarki said on Saturday.

These measures will soon be submitted to the government, he told reporters on the fringes of a ceremony organised in honour of the retired staff of the Tunisian Chemical Group’s Mdhilla 1 Factory.

Mbarki described as “inefficient” the increase in the retirement age and the 1% social solidarity contribution to the taxable income to reduce social funds’ deficit.

Regarding the strike of workers at the Mdhilla 2 Factory, Mbarki affirmed that this file will be referred to the government. A solution can be found soon, he added.

Workers of this factory are observing a strike since May 2 at the call of their basic union under the Tunisian Workers Union (French: UTT). These workers are demanding the regularisation of their professional situation.
