Punish anyone who stages strike: MP ‘Bonus demand of oil sector workers not due’

KUWAIT CITY, Feb 8, (Agencies): MP Hamad Seif has said the demand of oil sector personnel for special bonus is not due. He called for the concerned authority to punish anyone who stages a strike in the vital sector, reports Al-Watan Arabic daily. He cited a huge difference between the salaries of oil sector employees and those of the employees in other sectors, stressing “there’s is need to ensure justice and equality in the salaries of personnel in all sectors”.

He pointed out that some political blocs have been encouraging the syndicates of oil sector to conduct the strike to gain more privileges, but the trend is unacceptable because it forms a huge gap between the salaries of oil sector employees and other sectors. “Although it is important to support the oil sector and grant its employees incentives, as oil industry is the key source of the nation’s income, reasonable actions should be taken without straining the State’s budget”, he noted.

With reference to the proposed increment to children and rent allowances, MP Seif said it’s important for the parliament and the government to find a unanimous solution to the two files in the current period. He also said the need for the parliament to take a new approach in handling citizen-related issues far away from stubbornness and confrontation, because the trend has become useless in recent times as it leads to escalation between the two authorities and provokes chaos in the country.
