Egypt: Declaration by the Striking Workers of Misr Spinning and Weaving Company in Mahalla

We, the 24 thousand striking workers of the Misr Spinning and Weaving Company in Mahalla al-Kubra, on February 16, 2011 declare that we refuse to continue being forced to be members in the governmental Egyptian Trade Union Federation (ETUF). Hence, we demand that the company administration stop deducting from our salaries subscriptions that are paid to the General Union of Spinning and Textile Workers, which is a member of the ETUF.

We, the workers of Misr Spinning and Weaving Company, are hereby joining the new Egyptian Federation of Independent Trade Unions, whose Constituent Body was formed on January 30, 2011.
