The government is studying issuing a package of legislations that include issuing new laws for labour, syndicates and public office, Khaled al-Azhari, minister of manpower, has said.
New amendments for the current law of syndicates will be issued before the elections of Egypt's Trade Union Federation are held next November, the minister added.
At a meeting the Egyptian Union for Independent Syndicates which Aswat Masriya attended, al-Azhari said that his participation is "a governmental recognition of the legitimacy of independent syndicates."
The Egyptian Union for Independent Syndicates was formed after the January 25 revolution. It groups syndicates in governmental institutions and competes for membership and influence with the Trade Union Federation which was formed by the late president Gamal Abdel Nasser.
