    In 1989 all existing trade unions and associations were dissolved pending the promulgation of this Act, which adopts a new definition of "worker" that eliminates occupational distinctions, and gives each enterprise single union representation. The Minister of Justice is to issue regulations specifying the enterprises and sectors in which workers may establish trade unions. Workers who wish to form a trade union must form a preparatory committee on which all the constituents of the proposed union are represented. This committee is responsible for drawing up the constitution of the trade union. No sector or enterprise may be organised by more than one union, and the Registrar has the power to suspend the activities of any trade union committee if he considers that it is in breach of the law. The Act also provides for the formation of national trade union federations and national general professional associations, registration and dissolution of trade unions, and for transitional matters.
