Geneva – June 30, 2024


Workers at Techno Tex, a ready-made garments company located 35 km from Cairo, have gone on strike.

The strike, which began on Saturday, June 8, was triggered by the company’s failure to implement the minimum wage and the management’s deduction of 500 EGP from their wages as a transportation allowance.

The workers stated that these actions prompted their decision to strike, noting the complete lack of intervention from the labor office and the Egyptian Ministry of Manpower to resolve their issues with the company management.

The Committee for Justice (CFJ) emphasizes that striking is a legitimate right for workers to secure their rights, as enshrined in both international and local labor laws. CFJ urges the Egyptian Ministry of Manpower to fulfill its role in protecting and defending workers’ rights.
