The Tunisian General Labor Union has called on public sector employees to hold nationwide strikes on October 24 and November 22 to protest privatization moves by the government and weakened consumer purchasing power. Demonstrations by striking workers are possible during on strike days. A heightened security presence and associated transportation disruptions are to be anticipated near any demonstration sites.
Individuals are advised to monitor the situation and to avoid all public gatherings as a precaution.
