Jordania - Replacement workers (2013)

In a joint press conference with the Ministers of Interior and Finance it was announced that the government was taking measures to restore working conditions at the Jordan Customs Department where some workers had instigated a strike demanding pay raises and transport allowances. The Minister of Finance considered the strike as “not justified” and called on the workers to return to work and to put an immediate end to the strike. The Government has replaced the striking workers with police officers and is considering hiring retired workers as replacement.
