Egypt’s military to warn against labor strikes

by , under Blog

From Reuters:

Egypt’s new military rulers will issue a warning on Sunday against anyone who creates “chaos and disorder”, an army source said.
The Higher Military Council will also ban meetings by labor unions or professional syndicates, effectively forbidding strikes, and tell all Egyptians to get back to work after the unrest that toppled Hosni Mubarak.

Remember, when the army took over in 1952, first thing they did was executing two strike leaders at Kafr el-Dawar textile mill.

UPDATE: Egypt’s businessmen are of course thrilled.

  1. Argh!

    Now the darned Ghonim has been meeting the Generals.

    Can’t someone explain him the need for labor unions?
