AQABA —AlGhad— The General Union of Port Workers announced a general strike throughout the month of Ramadan, in protest over due rights which have not been met by the Aqaba Container Terminal (ACT) company, in accordance to Clause (135) of the Jordanian Labour Law.

Notably, according to the Union, the workers have been trying to negotiate mutually beneficial terms for the last 8 months.

The Company’s failure to responsibly engage the situation, workers say, has led the Union to escalate, meanwhile giving the company 27 days to meet their demands.
