How To Establish A Trade Union

How To Establish A Trade Union

The organizations participating in the issuance of this  book said , “In the recent months, we received many questions all around the same meaning from workers in the industrial , production and service sites : What is a union? What is its role ? How can it be established?
In an attempt to answer these questions we released this book, which includes a definition of the labor regulations, and what their roles, themes of work, objectives are and how to acquire   legal personality, and incorporation papers, regulation, organizational and administrative structure and principles of s work. The book includes models of records and papers of incorporation and a regulation.

In the past three years , the Egyptian labor movement has succeeded in the declaration and the establishment of four independent trade unions: real estate taxes ,health sciences , pensioners and teachers Association , thereby forcing the right to trade union pluralism after years of monopoly of trade unions sponsored by the old regime,  imposing one organization on Egypt’s workers, in violation of international conventions signed by Egypt, which provide  trade union freedoms and give workers the right to found their unions and not force them by law imposed to join a fake entity.

During the events of the revolution of January 25 ,The four unions announced the first union of independent trade unions in Egypt. Overthrowing  of  Mubarak opened the doors of hope and freedom to  masses of Egyptians who began to create associations, political parties and trade unions. Public transport workers, and Mansheyet elBakry hospital workers anounced their independent trade unions. Groups of sailors, textile workers, information centers and the labor force staff declared they started to establish their independent trade unions to defend their interests.

The organizations issuing this book declare their support for the rights of Egyptian workers in  establishing organizations that defend them  and the will to support the workers who want to establish trade unions, whether through counseling and advice on how to start, or assistance in the preparation of required documents, and backing in  all necessary legal action through the union leaders, lawyers, volunteers or human rights organizations and unions.
