Global Union Industriall warns from aerospace multinationals dismissing staff in Morocco and Tunisia following covid-19
"Aerospace companies must assume responsibility in Morocco and Tunisia", 15th of July 2020
As redundancy plans are presented in the MENA region, companies fail to assume responsibility. After benefiting considerably from the workers in Morocco and Tunisia, companies now dismiss staff without respecting the law.. The IndustriALL MENA aerospace union network discussed the consequences of the Covid-19 crisis and union responses together with the aerospace sector co-chairs from the US and France... Participants denounced multinational companies who lay-off employees without fully respecting national laws, collective agreements and the rules of proper social dialogue.. However, labour conditions are often poor with long shifts and hourly wages of less than US$2. Many companies also fight workers’ right to form a union and fire trade unionists when they become aware of an organizing campaign.
