The IUF and its affiliates have expressed their solidarity with the Tunisian national trade union center UGTT and the IUF-affiliated FGAT-UGTT following the terrorist attack on two resort hotels in Sousse in which 38 people lost their lives (see attached letters in French).

The attack, only months after the terrorist assault on the Bardo museum in Tunis (click here for more), took place at the start of the tourism season and was clearly intended to undermine one of the pillars of the Tunisian economy as well as the country’s still-fragile democracy.

The IUF stands in full solidarity with the workers and citizens of Tunisia and with the UGTT and its members, who have played a key role in the defense of democracy against terrorism and its other enemies.
