East African trade unions set terms for EPA talks

The East African Trade Union Congress (EATUC) has joined groups in calling for the deadline for the signing of the Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA) between the East African Community (EAC) and the European Union to be extended. A general meeting of the umbrella body for all regional trade unions listed ten conditions they say are crucial to the continuation of the EPA negotiations. According to a press statement detailing the meeting’s resolutions, EATUC Secretary General Emmanuel Nzunda said members have called for an extension of the July 2009 deadline to allow for further consultations. The trade unions demand to be fully involved in the negotiations in order to ensure social securities for hundreds of employees in numerous sectors that are bound to be affected once the EPA is signed.
