On Tuesday, August 28, the Regional Labor Union (URT) announced it had called off a general strike initially planned for Wednesday, August 29, in Medenine governorate. According to union representatives, the strike was suspended to allow for negotiations with government officials. A renewed general strike remains possible in the coming weeks should negotiations break down. The dispute is over the government's alleged failure to implement development projects in the region.
Individuals in Tunisia are advised to monitor developments to the situation and adhere to any instructions issued by the local authorities.
