Proposed by the Syndicat national des professionnels de la presse, République démocratique du Congo (SNPP)
The World Congress of the International Federation of Journalists, meeting in Angers from June 7th – 10th 2016,
recognising the progress made by the Syndicat National des Professionnels de la Presse in DRC on issues of journalists’ safety and the signing of a national Collective Agreement on media;
considering that the new administrative division of the country into 26 provinces instead of 11 induces the reorganisation of the trade union;
deeply concerned by the freeze of the trade union fees in the public sector since 2012 when wages started to be paid on bank accounts;
Congress calls on IFJ Executive Committee to give its technical and financial support to the implementation of the two-year programme 2016-2017 dedicated to the trade union development in the 15 new provinces and the stability of the national bodies.
