Are The Labor Unions Struggling Over Imposing Their Hegemony? Or Helping Workers to Fulfill Their Requests?

As Tunisia approaches its October 23rd constitutional elections, the transitional period has been marked by numerous strikes across the country.

Railway workers were planning to go on strike on August 18th. But a meeting between the board of directors of the Tunisian National Railway Company (SNCFT) and the local head of the offices of the Tunisian Labor Union (UTT) in Borj Cedria, Hammam-Lif, and Rades helped to conciliate the two sides. Mr. Hassen Kanzari,  Assistant General Secretary of UTT declared, “The issue concerning the respect of syndical rights had been solved. The board of direction of the SNCFT recognized the local syndicate related to the UTT which brings a large number of workers together.”

Some other meetings will take place in order to examine other requests, said Mr. Kanzari.

In an unrelated labor dispute, the general federation of services of the General Union of Tunisian Workers (UGTT) decided local and regional offices of Tunisie Telecom, the national tunisian company, will go in strike on August 16th and 17th. They have called the strike because of perceived excesses of the company and the extension of  turnover.
