Tunisian government undertakes to raise salaries of civil servants

The Tunisian government reached an agreement with the powerful trade union center, General Union of Tunisian Workers UGTT, which threatened to start a series of strikes from October 24th.

In exchange for lifting the proposed strike, the Youssef Chahed government pledges to increase the salaries of civil servants, which may provoke the disapproval of the IMF, which has been worried for years about the weight of the wage bill.

The Tunisian government seems to have made against bad luck, as the salary increase was not provided for in the 2019 finance bill.
