AMMAN — A Partial strike by the employees of the General Secretariat of the National Center for Human Rights (NCHR) continues for two hours for the 16th day in a row, a local media outlet reported.اضافة اعلان

The stroke is in response to the center’s board of trustees, which would not respond to the employees’ demand, which entailed cancelling some administrative decisions.

The decisions employees are protesting against are described as contrary to the legislation governing the work of the center.

One employee said that the council’s president canceled the meeting that was slated to take place on Wednesday because he felt that most of those who had confirmed their attendance were against his decisions.

The employee told the “Jordanian Labor Observatory” that some information was leaked about the council president’s intention to ban all protests at the center.

The employees said that they will continue to strike until the council’s president backs down from his decisions, which are not based on professional and institutional frameworks and standards.

The chairman of the Board of Trustees had appointed a commissioner for protection and a commissioner for promotion by proxy, elected the center’s staff, and filled other administrative vacancies.

As such, two employees were promoted to directors of departments, one in the Civil and Political Rights Department, the other in the Public and International Relations Department.

The employees criticized those decisions at the time because the president of the council decided alone on these promotions, without telling the members of the council.
