Tunisia strike will cancel international flights – union

The powerful Tunisian General Labor Union (UGTT) union said all international flights to and from the country will be canceled on Thursday as part of a nationwide strike to protest President Kais Saied’s policies.

The UGTT trade union is demanding salary rises for employees in the public sector after a decision by Mr Saied’s government to freeze wages.

The move is part of a reform package intended to help reach a deal with the International Monetary Fund for a $4bn (£3.3bn) loan.

The UGTT says that all staff at around 160 state institutions and public companies will stop work on Thursday.
