The CTUWS puts out a statement on the dissolution of the ETUF. This is an incredible win for Egyptian workers. The ETUF is a yellow union with Mubarak’s NDP cronies at all levels of leadership. This drives one more nail in the coffin of the structures of the Mubarak regime that impeded the progress of Egyptian labor.
