Any changes to social security bill require ILO nod There are no plans to amend the Social Security Corporation Law and any possible changes to the law will have to go through the International Labour Organisation (ILO) and undergo thorough scrutiny, the General Federation of Jordanian Trade Unions (GFJTU) said on Tuesday.Mahmoud Al Btoush, representative of the 200,000-strong union and board member of the Social Security Corporation (SSC), denied the existence of any plan to change the law.His remarks came in response to “groundless” reports circulated by some media which went viral on various social media platforms.“There have been some suggestions that have not been heeded. That’s all,” the unionist said, adding: “The ILO assessment is necessary to protect the rights of all” subscribers to the corporation.Founded in 1954, the federation is the sole trade union centre in the country, serving as an umbrella for 17 affiliated unions. Group of MPs wants cancelled FTA with Turkey reactivate A group of MPs on Tuesday called on the government to reactivate the recently-suspended Free Trade Agreement (FTA) with Turkey.In a memorandum they submitted to the Lower House permanent office to be forwarded to the government, a total of 20 deputies called for reactivating the FTA with Turkey, citing Jordan's needs of such an agreement in light of the border closures as a result of turbulent surrounding.The government in March suspended the FTA with Turkey, citing Ankara's failure to meet its commitments under the partnership agreement that went into effect in 2011. The government at the time said that the decision came came to “support the industrial, agricultural and productive sectors in Jordan and render them more competitive locally and overseas”.Expressing dissatisfaction over the government's justifications to cancel the FTA with Turkey "because not based on real evaluation", signatories of the memo, a copy of which was seen by The Jordan Times, said that the decision "came abruptly and without prior warning".They also said that the validating reasons for signing the FTA with Turkey were the "exact opposite" of the validating reasons for cancelling it. * Source: Bloomberg, Jordan Times, Zawya Disclaimer Awraq Investments and its affiliates obtain information from sources they believe to be reliable, but do not warrant its accuracy or fitness for a particular purpose, and disclaim for themselves and their information providers all liability arising from the use.
