Tunisia: UGTT Calls On Its Structures to Protect Their Establishments and Prevent Any Destruction of Their Archives, Documents and Equipment

Tunis/Tunisia — The Tunisian General Labour Union (UGTT) called its union structures in all regions, sectors and institutions to protect their establishments and prevent any destruction of their archives, documents and equipment.

In a statement issued on Thursday, the Union called on all its structures and members to redouble their efforts and vigilance in this exceptional situation the country is going through in order to fight against malicious intentions.

This call comes in the aftermath of attempts to destroy part of the archives of some institutions, said to TAP UGTT Deputy Secretary General in charge of the private sector Mohamed Ali Boughdiri, pointing out that the UGTT has more than 15,000 trade union formations spread across various institutions and sectors and are all concerned by the protection of institutions against attempts to steal archives or vandalism.

The trade union leader also affirmed the union's support for President Kais Saied's decision calling for the restitution of public funds looted by businessmen (about 13,500 billion) through a tax reconciliation.
