The Head of Government Aziz Akhannouch said on Saturday in Rabat that the social agreement signed by the government, the CGEM and the most representative trade unions, is an “important achievement” to improve the conditions of the working class.
Akhannouch explained, in a statement to the press, following the signing of the minutes of the agreement covering the period between 2022 and 2024, that this “important agreement”, which includes a set of obligations, including raising the minimum wage, will help address a series of problems suffered by the working class, as well as strengthen the foundations of the social state.
On the other hand, the Head of Government said that the signing of the National Charter of Social Dialogue comes in implementation of the directives of His Majesty King Mohammed VI on the institutionalization of social dialogue, noting that this charter will contribute to the legalization of social dialogue, by organizing meetings between the three parties.
Akhannouch concluded that “despite the difficult national and global economic situation, the working class will remain one of our priorities, and we will continue to work and dialogue next September and May, and whenever the opportunity arises, to improve conditions in this pivotal class period.”
