(TAP)- The basic union of the Ammonium Nitrate plant of the Tunisian Chemical Group (GCT) in Gabès, decided to stop work in production units until a set of demands is met.

This decision comes after the multiplication of technical breakdowns observed and the failure to respect the maintenance of the equipment used, the union said in a statement.

The trade union demanded the obtaining of a certificate of the good condition of the equipment, elaborated by experts of accredited control offices, to avoid a disaster in the factory and bordering residential areas, similar to the incident that occurred in 2001 in the French city of Toulouse (case of the explosion of the chemical fertilizer manufacturing plant).

The union expressed its concern about the crisis that is shaking this company, considered one of the pillars of the national economy because of its role in agricultural production by promoting the necessary quantities of good quality agricultural Ammonium Nitrate, added the same source.
