Unions | ECESR Concludes Series of Workshops on New Union Liberties Bill

Along with the Southern Center for Work Rights (El-Ganoub Center) and the Egyptian Federation for Independent Trade Unions, ECESR has concluded a series of conferences and workshops on the currently examined new Unions’ Liberties Bill and the challenges facing the Unions organizational work.

These workshops, which extended over two month period and were held in a number of Egyptian cities such as Alexandria, Demietta, Mansouram, Qena, Aswan Suez and others, were attended by representatives of over 40 independent trade unions.

The workshops come to push for the new Union Liberties bill that ECESR participated in framing with government’s consecutive Labor ministers: Ahmed El-Boraai, Fathi Fekri, Khaled Al-Azhari and the current Labor minister: Kamal Abu-Eitta.

ECESR, along with its partners have pushed for the quick issuance of the law to legitimize and systematize the working conditions of over 1400 independent trade unions, in addition to re-establishment of the Union’s committees as base organizations where workers can actively participate in negotiating over their rights and needs, securing the principle of union assembly and organizing.
