Trade Unions maintain pressure over ERB

Since the Government’s announcement to introduce new laws at the forthcoming National Assembly sittings in November, the trade unions have been on hot ashes. They’ve been maintaining pressure for the withdrawal of these bills which, they believe, go against acquired rights of employees.

While the employers’ federation seems to agree with the new proposals, the unions are adamant on their position to urge Government to put them aside.

Unions both from the private and public sectors met again in a common platform last week. They have unanimously agreed on a strike action on 10 December to protest against Government’s indifference to their views.
