Marruecos - Violations of union rights more frequent in Morocco

In the past year, violations by the authorities and companies of the right to organise have become more frequent, and workers have often suffered from union-busting practices and retaliatory measures, including undue deductions from the wages of striking employees, abusive judicial action against trade unionists, refusal to engage in collective bargaining, targeted dismissal of union officials and striking workers, and lockouts. The authorities have also demonstrated hostility towards unions as many local authorities refused to register newly formed trade unions.
All these anti-union measures have a chilling effect on workers’ capacity to defend their rights collectively and negatively impact collective bargaining, which, as a result, is virtually absent in most companies and sectors. Previous commitments between the government and representatives of trade union confederations have been suspended without implementation.
