Activists seek signatures against draft labor law

A campaign of labor activists has called for collecting signatures to reject government draft amendments to the labor law currently in the works, as well as to call for replacing the existing law.
The campaign dubbed Towards a Fair Labor Law said that consecutive governments that took over following the January 2011 uprising failed to change the “unjust” law enacted in 2003.
The group said its proposed draft enjoys the backing of several trade unions, human rights and political activists, and also strips employers the power to arbitrarily dismiss workers without a judicial verdict, and ensures the right of peaceful protests and strikes.
It also proposes changes that include the establishment of an independent “supreme labor commission” that binds several decision-making powers.
