CAIRO: Trade union representatives on Sunday proposed amendments to the constitution that would remove restrictive judicial oversights and guarantee greater independence.

Representatives from 24 trade unions presented their proposals during a hearing session held by the Dialogue and Social Communication Commission, a subdivision of the 50-member constitutional committee that is tasked with amending the suspended 2012 constitution.

They stressed the need to legalize the right to strike, stating that unorganized strikes harm the national economy.

Sameh Ashour, Rapporteur of the Dialogue and Social Communication Commission, promised to hold another hearing session for trade unions to accommodate those that were not able attend or could not present during the session.
