Dakar, January 26 (APS) – Ibrahima Khaliloulah Ndiaye, the former Secretary General of Sindicata Information and Communication of Senegal (SYNPICS), stressed on the need for journalists to work for the effective implementation of the new Collective Agreement and the Press Code.
"We believe we have to deploy and exchange to achieve the effective implementation of these texts," he said during his speech at the SYNPICS's 10th Ordinary Congress.
"We emphasized the need and the desire to see the immediate application of the two texts we could know about the collective agreement and the press code," stressed Ndiaye, who will be the leader of the union to the outcome of the congress.
He has thus expressed his desire for the rapid end of the application texts to allow the profession and the media to do well in general.
New collective agreement for journalists has just entered into Senegal. It dominates, among other things, the exercise of the profession, especially the emoluments section and the pay of the actors. It replaces the convention that existed since 1992.
The Press Code adopted on June 20, 2017 of the National Assembly covers the definition of the status of journalists and technicians working in the media, the rights and duties of journalists and the rules governing the economic aspects of press companies.
At the opening of the SYNPICS Congress, whose subject is the application of this text, the Secretary General of the Ministry of Communication, Telecommunications, Posts and Digital Economy, Yoro Moussa Diallo, repeated the commitment to terminate the earliest possible process from the application of the new Press Code.
