Federation of Somali Trade Unions (FESTU), a national trade union center based in Mogadishu and its affiliate Somali National union of Teachers (SNUT) are seeking answers from the Federal government of Somalia over the non-payment of the teachers by standing in solidarity with the teachers.


"We are appalled by the non-payment of the salaries of the Teachers working at the prestigious Somali National University by the Federal government of Somalia.” YAQUB Moalim, President of Federation of Somali Trade Unions (FESTU) who is also Chairperson of SNUT said, "We stand in solidarity with the Somali teachers on strike to get their righs and demand from the government to urgently facilitate the payment of the teachers’ salaries.”

Somalia do not have independent workers law that outlines the rights of the independent workers, forcing many to work long hours without proper pay.
