Trade Union Rights and Challenges for Public Services Unions in the MENA and African Region

The political, economic and cultural circumstances on the African continent are characterised by hugely variegated conditions. Africa has huge disparities in the distribution of wealth, concentrations of private and public investment, labour and democratic participation.

Full enjoyment of trade union rights continues to be denied workers in most countries. Public sector workers face a particularly wide range of restrictions, on freedom of association, collective bargaining and the right to strike.
