The New Re-organization of Trade-Unions. Law No. 62 for 1964, Together with The Ministerial Executive Orders, May, 1964

[Cairo]: U[united] A[rab] R[epublic], Ministry of Labour, 1964. First edition. Small, perfect-bound, stapled wrappers (4¼” x 6¾”), 109 pp. A bureaucratic, but no less fascinating, document from the Ministry of Labour of the relatively short-lived United Arab Republic. The reorganization of the UAR’s trade unions evolved out of a series of socialist decrees issued in 1961, which nationalized a significant portion of the manufacturing and commercial enterprises. The Ministry of Labor was established the following year and one of its two primary roles was to reorganize the trade unions. Some consequences of the new law (no. 62) were further centralization of unions, a loss of income for local unions, and “weak organizational links between the local union, federation and confederation structures.” By 1971 the UAR had dissolved. Some wear to wrappers with a small tear at lower spine, a few pages with underlining, VG. 11 copies found in OCLC. Item #05704
