Rabat, Morocco (TMT)- In light of the ongoing social dialogue taking place in Morocco, one aimed to find a compromise regarding the prospective pension reform, Miloudi Moukharik, the secretary general of the Moroccan Labor Union (UMT), deemed the most important trade union in Morocco, said following a syndicate meeting, chaired on Tuesday by Morocco’s head of the government, Abdelilah Benkirane that “an agreement has been reached and that the most important conclusions of this agreement, including a gift to Moroccan workers, will be unveiled on labor day”, next May 1st.

The syndicate meeting also saw the participation of many Moroccan labor unions.

“The most important points we discussed included salaries raise, pension reform, union freedom, and the retirement dossier,” Moukharik stressed.

“We agreed on the need of reforming the whole public sector, not just the pension system,” Moukharik further noted.
