Jordan: Release leaders of the Jordanian Teacher Association

In partnership with the Education International, a global union federation of 384 associations and unions in 178 countries and territories, representing some 32.5 million educators and support professionals.

Education International (EI) calls on workers and unionists to urge the Jordanian authorities to immediately release the education union leaders and revoke the unlawful suspension of all union work by the Jordanian Teacher Association.

The Jordanian security forces arrested leading members of the union on 25 July, raided the union offices and shut the union down for two years. JTA had criticised the government for their poor handling of the Covid crisis. On the same day riot police were deployed to stop peaceful demonstrations initiated by JTA members denouncing the crackdown on trade union rights.

The Jordanian government has been using emergency laws enacted last March to limit civil and political rights.

Sign a message to support the unconditional release of union leaders and guarantee the exercise of fundamental rights of teachers and education workers in Jordan.
