The intersyndicale of the primary sector (Synttas, Sytrapaset Snte), not happy with the turn of the negotiations with the government, rejects the negotiations, and decrees a general strike of 48 H, from this Wednesday, November 2, on the whole of the national territory.

These workers, who include agents from the primary sector, in particular from the Ministries in charge of Fisheries, Agriculture and Animal Husbandry, are still denouncing the abolition of the incentive bonus, through a circular taken by the outgoing Minister of Finance and Budget, Abdoulaye Daouda Diallo.

So far, no agreement with the Government that is delaying has been made. But these workers, facing the press, intend to go to the end, it is not even excluded to make an unlimited strike, because it is the dignity of agents of the primary sector that is at stake. And this dignity will never be violated. And it is up to the State to respect its commitments».
