Education International (EI) calls on workers and unionists to urge the Jordanian authorities to immediately release the education union leaders and revoke the unlawful suspension of all union work by the Jordanian Teacher Association

The Jordanian security forces arrested leading members of the union on 25 July, raided the union offices and shut the union down for two years. JTA had criticised the government for their poor handling of the Covid crisis. On the same day riot police were deployed to stop peaceful demonstrations initiated by JTA members denouncing the crackdown on trade union rights.
