Agreement Friperie Tunisie
According to Zanad, it was decided to suspend the strike of roast professionals, and to dedicate safe places in industrial sorting warehouses for used clothing, for the storage of used shoes, classified for re-export. “The sector provides 200,000 jobs and feeds about 200,000 families,” he said. Another second-hand clothing salesman, who requested anonymity, accused the “barons of stores and commercial companies of being the initiators of this law. The young man, masterfully in mathematics, has been in this profession for eight years and admits that there are “good and bad guys”. “They want to take over this activity that supports thousands of people. Already, taxes are not organized and the stoves are not only managed by the municipalities, there are barons who make the law “, says the seller. The decision to go on strike on 20 December 2019 was taken by both trade union chambers during a plenary session at Utica headquarters this afternoon to discuss the results of their communication published on 2 December 2019 and their written questions to the Tunisian customs office, the Ministry of Commerce and other ministries concerned with their activities. So far, these requirements have remained unequiable. The two national trade union chambers of retail retailers (import, export, distribution, recycling and manufacturing) under UTICA have decided to suspend the strike originally planned for 20 December 2019 and to postpone it sine die. Good news for lovers of frike clothing and shoes. The stores will respond to their activities from May 11, said Sahbi Maâlaoui, president of the National Chamber of Trade Unions of Retail Traders. The meetings of this committee, which was responsible for the organization of the activities of the stores, had been interrupted three years ago, whereas previously they were held at regular intervals in the Ministry of Commerce, in the presence of all parties involved and all the experts.
Especially because they fear that customs and the IRS will seize the portfolio of an “anarchic” sector that generates crazy sums. Similarly, the sector is heavily suspected of embezzlement from charities. Finally, in the recent past, there has been talk of money laundering in trade, as you mentioned in a January 2018 Kapitalis article (“Smuggling: news in the case of Chokry Cheniti”), and it would not be surprising if money laundering continued to thrive in a very informal sector… According to a statement issued on Thursday by the two national trade unions of distributors, the Ministry of Commerce has committed to reactivate the Trade Commission from the new year 2020 in order to dialogue between professionals in the sector, the Ministry of Commerce as well as the customs and departments concerned. These requests relate to an emergency meeting requested by representatives of both chambers to find appropriate solutions to the new Tunisian customs procedures “regarding the strengthening of customs control of companies operating in the processing of used clothing, sorting and processing and combating the phenomenon of used thrift shoes”.
