Rabat, Morocco (TMT)- More than 200 of the Royal Air Maroc crew took to the streets adjacent to the company’s headquarters in Casablanca to denounce the poor conditions they work under, including the company’s “exploiting the crew” of Atlas Multiservices group, Royal Air Maroc’s subsidiary.
Crew members from various nationalities were calling upon King Mohammed VI in person to intervene, shouting, “Oh Commander of the believers [King Mohammed VI], look after the crew.”
“It is a shame, it is a shame, the crew is in danger,” the protesters were also shouting, as the featured video illustrates.
The crew said their meeting last Monday with the company’s management did not yield any positive results, stressing that Royal Air Maroc “was well aware that they would go on a strike for two days,” systematically blatantly refuting the company’s communiqué where it stressed that it was “very surprised by this decision [strike], given that the meeting [with the striking crew last Monday] took place in a responsible climate and that the two parties have agreed to resume their dialogue.”
