Egypt: Manpower Minister - Inactivated Trade Union Freedoms Law to Be Reviewed

Minister of Manpower and Immigration Kamal Abu Aita said that he called on the Egyptian Trade Union Federation (ETUF) to participate in the final revision of the inactivated draft law on the trade union freedoms in order to be approved and issued by the president of the republic as soon as possible.

In statements to "Al Ahram" newspaper on Saturday 20/07/2013, Abu Aita said that he agreed with Prime Minister Dr. Hazem El-Beblawy on opening the files of suspended plants, dismissed workers and return of privatized companies to the State.

He added that the government expressed readiness for full cooperation for the interests of the workers.

The Minister stressed that the major companies, which were sold at lower prices, will be returned to the State in implementation of the court rulings issued on this regard.
