In a press release sent to the editorial staff of Dakaractu, the Permanent Executive Secretariat (SEP) of the General Federation of Workers of Senegal-B (FGTS/B) informs of the holding of its “ordinary session this Saturday, May 25, 2024 at its head office after its first ordinary congress on April 20, 2024 at the CNFA in Rufisque”.

Thus, the SEP reacted to the situation in the country. “While waiting for a substantial drop in the cost of living, the FGTS/B welcomes the drop in the price of fertilizer and especially the arrangements made to supervise the distribution of inputs and urges the desalination and planting of areas more important as well as the recovery of unexploited lands ceded to large companies such as the Grands Domaines du Sénégal (GDS) or to individuals, in order to offer employment opportunities to indigenous populations and thus move towards food sovereignty. The SEP proposes the establishment of a national day dedicated to agriculture and fishing like livestock breeding, in a better endogenous approach as recommended. In addition, the high cost of medicines and care is part of it. of the exorbitant cost of living if it does not simply mortgage it And because of the exponential rise in health expenses called “catastrophic expenses”, the charges represent more than 52% for households compared to 48% for the. State and its development partners. The SEP calls on the government, following the example of justice reform, to reread the misguided 1998 hospital reform and better implementation of Universal Health Coverage (UHC) through another approach that is simply more relevant.

Returning to the point relating to “the rights to representativeness, the SEP points out.” The SEP notes, to deplore it, the attitude of the ministry in charge of labor which persists in depriving the FGTS/B of its rights to representativeness in all institutions and meetings due to the partisan procrastination of the Director General of Labor and Social Security and leaves it to the arbitration of the Prime Minister who is slow to acknowledge receipt of our various letters. We hope that out of simple Republican courtesy, this will not take long.
Reading the list of delegates from Senegal, one of the largest in the world, to the 112th International Labor Conference, including non-representative union centers whose score in recent representative elections varies between 0 and 5% as well as almost the entire workforce of the Ministry of Labor to the detriment of the FGTS/B whose efforts earned it the very honorable score of 10.20%, the SEP felt discomfort and a feeling of injustice. The SEP once again invites the Prime Minister to hold the restitution plenary promised to And Gueusseum for an outcome of the crisis in local authorities and an end to the retention of health and social information which continues and undermines the system health care whose management is done visually without any relevant indicator even if performance is announced.
Furthermore, the denials and confusion maintained by the Director General of Labor and Social Security on the cancellation of the results of the representative elections of unions in the education sector have caught the attention of the SEP which invites the Prime Minister to an arbitration of an election of educators tainted by fraud depriving the SELS/A of its natural place because a union whose representativeness is beyond any doubt.
The SEP urges Comrade Mbaye Sow, Secretary General of SUDTM, to be more committed to his relevant proposals for ending the crisis in local authorities and calls on workers to respect the slogans of the Alliance And Gueusseum.

Before concluding “The SEP bows to the memory of the cowardly murdered teachers and demands more security for the populations and particularly the State agents working in areas known to be difficult. The SEP congratulates all the comrades and thanks them for their full participation in the May 1st celebration in all regions and criticizes the posture of the Ministry of Labor which takes pleasure in zapping the FGTS/B from all official meetings, the last of which concerns justice reform, while reminding it how much it is delicate to drown the…whale fish”.
