The strike was called upon because of the deprivation and loss suffered by the Moroccan people and working-class, demanding an end to the situation by implementing a real increase in wages and pensions, ensuring that all workers benefit from their national wealth, and achieving social justice.
The WFTU expresses its full solidarity and support for the united struggle of the Moroccan trade unions against the poverty and the deterioration of living and working conditions.
