Rights campaign presents Labour Law draft to Ministry of Manpower

A campaign entitled “Towards a Fair Labour Law” presented Wednesday a draft of the Labour Law to the Ministry of Manpower, in an attempt to address the “deficiencies” in the current law and the successive drafts introduced by the government.

A delegation from the campaign is set to meet with the Minster of Manpower Nahed Al-Ashry within the next week and it plans to send a delegation to submit the draft to the International Labour Organization’s (ILO) office next Sunday, according to Fatma Ramadan, campaign member.

The government plans to issue a new Labour Law; however the group argues that this new law comes in the context of the recent Economic Summit, where the government’s main focus lies in promoting investments and attracting foreign businesses, while workers remain the “weaker link” in the work relationship.
