Dismissal of a Union Leader in the Federation of Workers Unions
The Free Federation of Bahrain Labors Unions condemned the dismissal of the union leader in the General Federation of Sudanese Labor Unions, Omar Al-Basha, from his job at the Sudanese News Agency (SUNA).
The decision was a response to his participation in the Arab Labor Conference, and his defense of labor union freedoms in Sudan, pointing out that it came a few days after his election as Assistant General Secretary for Arab Relations at the International Federation of Arab Labor Unions.
The Federation of Bahrain Labors Unions called on the Sudanese authorities to reconsider the decision and other illegal decisions taken against labor unionists and the labor union movement in general, with a view to protecting labor rights.
