Egyptian govt signs incentive deal ahead of textile workers strike
20
Oct '11
The Egyptian Government has signed a deal to increase incentives of those working in the spinning and weaving industry to avert the planned nation-wide strike by textile workers on October 20. The strike by textile workers has now been called off.

The agreement was signed by Abdel Fatah Ibrahim, Head of the General Union for Spinning and Textile Workers, Ali al-Selmy, Deputy Prime Minister for Political Affairs, and Ahmed al-Borai, Minister of Manpower and Immigration.

Under the agreement, the Government has agreed to raise the incentives for textile workers in public companies on a retroactive basis and also to increase meal reimbursements to LE210.

The deal will benefit around 70,000 workers engaged in 26 public-owned spinning and weaving units in the country.

Those working in private textile factories will not be able to avail the benefit immediately. However, private companies may implement the incentives after a careful study in order to bring working and wage conditions at par in both the public and private sectors.
