Head of Government : Morocco Seeks to Preserve Multi-party System and Multi-unionism

Morocco seeks to preserve the multi-party system and the multi-unionism and has mediation institutions in charge of securing social peace so as to ensure the stability of the Kingdom, said Head of Government, Saad Dine El Otmani, Monday in Rabat.

El Otmani, who received a delegation from the General Secretariat of the International Confederation of Arab Trade Unions (ICATU), reviewed the various initiatives of trade unions that led to the signing of several collective and sectoral labor agreements.

He also shed light on initiatives made by some companies and plants who are considered as partners in dialogue in order to end social tensions, said a statement from the Department of the Head of Government.

El Otmani reaffirmed, in this regard, that HM King Mohammed VI is determined to ensure social peace.

For his part, ICATU Secretary General Ghassan Ghosn highlighted Morocco's pioneering experience in institutionalizing social dialogue between the government, trade unions and representatives of business leaders, noting that the Kingdom was among the first countries to have established the bases of social dialogue through the creation of the Economic, Social and Environmental Council (CESE).

Talks also focused on the developments in the Arab world and on the need to foster dialogue between countries and institutions in order to fight social conflicts, the source added.
