Over 500 trade unionists from the Rouiba industrial zone march to protest the effect of unpaid salaries, the impact of the austerity-created economic crisis on their publicly-owned companies, and the impact of a draconian new labor law. Mokdad Messaoudi, the general secretary of the local union (UGTA), which represents 86 trade union sections, said “the Hydro Technique public company has not paid its 2,000 employees for two months.

All this is done in order to justify privatization in the future.”
