  • Description

    Delegates to the Labour Commission of the Organisation of African Unity met in Tunis for the opening of Tuesday (18 April) of its latest session.

    SYNOPSIS: The meeting in Tunis was the third session held by the O.A.U.'s labour commission. The Directory General of the I.L.O Monsieur Francis Blanchart, was among delegates from all over the continent in Tunis for the meeting. He said the essential theme of the session was the implementation of decisions taken at a world labour conference in Geneva in 1976. The Tunis meeting was chaired by the Tunisian Prime Minister, Monsieur Hedi Nouira, who paid tribute to the achievements of the Organisation of African Unity since its foundation in 1963. But he said the problem occupying the organisation's attention was still the presence of the white minority governments in South Africa and Rhodesia. Monsieur Nouira said the total liberation of African knew only one barrier: that of racial discrimination. He said the governments in Pretoria and Salisbury did not respond to the hope of political solutions, and, instead, were resorting to a variety of delaying manoeuvres.
