The President of the General Federation of Jordanian Trade Unions, Mazen Maaitah, announced that the Federation and all trade unions affiliated under its umbrella will not be participating in the 4th circle protests scheduled today, November 30, 2018, or any other protest activities.
Maaitah said in a press statement that "the Union is always biased towards the rights and concerns of the citizen and stands by his side, but today’s protest was not coordinated with us, and we have not receive any invitation to participate, as we do not know who is behind this organization."
He stressed that trade unions have always been in the trenches for the rights of the working class and for improving their living conditions.
