LEGISLATION WATCH- El Sisi issues amendments to the Labor Unions Act, which regulates the formation and activities of workers’ unions, reports Al Shorouk. The amendments grant workers the right to establish unions that are made up of at least 50 workers. Union organizers who violate the act will be subject to fines ranging between EGP 50k and EGP 200k, and could have their property and assets confiscated, and the location of the union shut down. Union members who deliberately give out inaccurate data relating to the organizational, financial, administrative status of their entities will face fines between EGP 50k and EGP 20k.
