Unions representing Mauritius in particular transport workers, the port, the civil service and the sugar industry paraded in mass in Port-Louis, this Saturday afternoon to push the government to review its own future amendments according to the trade unions to reduce the right to strike.
 
5000 protesters shouted their anger and from Bell-Village up to the hotel of the Government under a rain at the heart of the capital of Mauritius.
 
A letter stating all their claims was then submitted to the Office of the Prime Minister Navin Ramgoolam.
 
The adoption of these amendments during the next parliamentary session begins on March 26 would result in an immediate reaction from unions because "the real power is in our hands", they said through the voice of Ashok Subron.
 
Navin Ramgoolam "must take his responsibilities", said Ashok Subron to the lexpress.mu site.
 
Otherwise, threat of a strike in the transport sector will be launched to make the government.
 
"If on March 26, amendments to labor laws are voted, we will become slaves, that are why we need to show that we do not agree", said Ashok Subron.
