‘State of confusion at KPC’ KGOC chairman criticizes oil min

KUWAIT CITY, June 2: Chairman of Kuwait Gulf Oil Company (KGOC) laborers union Faleh Al-Askar has criticized the Minister of Oil and Chairman of Kuwait Petroleum Corporation’s (KPC) board of directors Dr Ali A-Omair for the state of confusion at the KPC as a result of which there have been conflicts and discords in the oil sector, reports Al- Seyassah daily. In a press statement, Al-Askar said the tensions and conflicts inside KPC have negatively reflected on the entire oil sector and as result the employee has become a victim of the sector’s instability.

The main cause of this situation was unstudied and sudden decisions taken by the KPC to reduce the ‘share and success’ awards which the corporation grants to employees of the oil sector.

Consequently, the oil sector by far has not become a fertile environment for hard work and this reflects the KPC’s failure to achieve its strategy which has been allotted to develop the manpower because of violation the rights of employees. He said the union considers violations committed against employees as a humiliation within the oil sector because the award is considered a ‘gift’ for the employees not one of their rights.

He has asked the minister to amend the percentage of ‘share and success’ award failing which he called on the minister to quit the job.

In another development, the Al-Jarida daily said the Kuwait Oil Company (KOC) has from 1999 until now given 5,565 square meters under its control to the Public Authority for Housing Welfare.
