Jordan: Education International condemns dissolution of teachers’ union and detention of leaders


On 31 December, the Amman Magistrate's Court authorised the dissolution of the Jordanian Teachers Association (JTA) and the detention of all 13 teacher association board members for a year.

According to Education International (EI), the dissolution is illegal and due to an improper interpretation of the legal provisions. The sentence against the board members is also unfair, because they were prevented from presenting evidence against the charges.

EI is calling on workers and unionists to urge the Jordanian authorities to immediately stop harassing the leaders of the JTA.

More Information is available on the EI Website
