Negotiations between Teachers’ Unions and President Alpha Condé fail.


Alpha Condé and trade unionists separate without any agreement! ” The Strike continues,” say the unions.
According to information gathered, the meeting with the head of the State gave absolutely nothing this Wednesday 15 February 2017.After having obtained nothing from Professor Alpha Condé, the trade unionists finally promised to visit the base tomorrow. But in the meantime, the strike continues throughout the whole Guinean territory.
 No specific information has filtered from the meeting between the President of the Republic, trade unionists, employers and relevant ministries. While the representatives firmly agreed to keep the discretion, the government spokesman also did not want to disclose the contents of the meeting.
 “Very specific exchanges have been held and each of the parties has been called on to find approaches and to consult, in particular, its base. “I will say no more, since the unions have decided to go and consult their base, “said Albert Damantang Camara, government spokesman and minister of technical education.
 Journalists tried to snatch something from the unions, but to no avail. What happened ? “We can not directly sell this here without the knowledge of the base,” said Dr. Souleymane Sy Savané, deputy secretary general of the USTG (Trade Union of Workers of Guinea). Is hope possible? “Let’s wait and see tomorrow,” he replied. Was the head of state convincing? “I can not answer that question,” replied Savane to this other question.
 On leaving, Amara Balato Keita, the secretary general of the Professional Federation of Education, invited teachers and contractors to come tomorrow to the Bourse de Travail for the report of the meeting with Alpha Condé.
To recall that the Guinean Teachers’ Unions, through the Professional Federation of Trade Unions (FSPE) and the Free Trade Union of Teachers and Researchers of Guinea (SLECG), have launched a general and unlimited strike since 6 February 2017. The strike, initially banned by the government, which did not seem to take trade union leaders seriously, led to the current closure of all institutes, schools and universities in the Republic of Guinea.
