Rabat – The National Union of education has chosen quite an uncanny way to welcome the newly appointed minister of education in office. Said Amzami will be faced with a 24 hours national strike on February 14.
The National Union of Education and the Democratic Confederation of Labor (CDT) have called for a “ 24h national strike and organized sit-ins in front of the provincial ministerial institutions on February 14,” says a communiqué by the organizers.
This decision came to denounce the vile situation of the public services of education, the rise in school registration fees that systematically seek to eliminate free education, as well as the standstill condition of dialogue with the government.
The strike also aims to prompt Amzazi to respond to the social and financial demands of educational body and provide retired teachers with their rights.
In an attempt to meet these demands, Amzami wants to “adopt an approach with teachers and to discuss all the issues, including the law of education reform.”
The CDT also considers that this first teachers’ strike for 2018, with more upcoming dates to be announced on February 14.
