Unionized transport workers plan to launch a sit-in protest in La Kasbah in Tunis on Jan. 2. The sit-in protest comes amid disagreements between the transport labor union and the Ministry of Transport. Organizers have not specified an exact time for the Jan. 2 sit-in demonstration.
The labor action will likely prompt significant delays and cancellations of ground transportation services in Tunis. Increased traffic congestion is also likely as commuters resort to using private vehicles.
Reconfirm public transportation schedules for the duration of the sit-in. Allow extra time to reach destinations. Reserve private car hires in advance due to the potential for higher-than-usual demand during the strike. Avoid all protests as a precaution.
