Jordania - Security forces prevent strike (2013)

Security forces prevented workers at the Justice Palace from entering the building where they had been demonstrating for 19 consecutive days calling for better work conditions and increased wages and bonuses. Specifically, workers asked for an inclusion in the bonus system, the restructuring of incentives regulations, the amendment of wages for third category employees and the amendment of the Social Security Fund regulations. The strike had caused delays in court proceedings in Amman but also in other cities where workers joined the strike, in particular in Irbid and Tafileh.
