Angolan minister of Public Administration, Labour and Social Security Teresa Rodrigues Dias reiterated Monday the Executive’s commitment to meet workers demands.
In a congratulatory message to mark International Workers’ Day, Teresa Dias points to the new General Labour Law and the new Labour Procedure Code as crucial instruments for guaranteeing labour rights and obligations.
According to the minister, the full satisfaction of the workers’ legitimate demands is the Executive’s goal, despite the long way to go.
“However, we are encouraged by the firm conviction that better days are approaching, taking into account the improvement in the macroeconomic scenario and the implementation of economic and social development policies”, reiterated the minister.
Teresa Dias also announced deep changes as being underway at the level of the National Institute of Social Security, with the assumption of guaranteeing dignified pensions for workers and decent life for pensioners.
In the message, the minister bows to the memory of the men and women who fought for the improvement of working conditions and the dignity of workers, congratulating everyone, from the most diverse specialties, for continuing to lend their commitment and dedication to dignifying the Nation.
To Teresa Rodrigues Dias, the 1st of May, 1886 will never be forgotten and will continue to be celebrated by all those who continue to fight for better conditions for workers.
The minister also highlights the role of social partners, with main emphasis on trade unions and employers’ organisations, which have stood out for their dialogue and permanent social dialogue.
