Rewards create rift among PASS staff PM intervention sought

KUWAIT CITY, July 25: Some employees of Public Authority for Social Security (PASS) who embarked on strike in the last few weeks have threatened to resign collectively to protest alleged bribe ranging between KD 1000 to 3000 which was released in the form of reward for employees that refused to join in the strike and delayed their participation until the official suspension of activities by the syndicate, reports Al-Seyassah daily.

Sources were quoted as saying the employees will resign collectively in reaction to the step director of the authority Hamad Al-Humaidhi took by giving employees who declined to take part in the sit-in the financial reward, which provoked standoff between the employees who had good intentions and decided to suspend the strike for the national welfare, and completed the transactions of visitors after the administration failed to resolve their problems in 40 days consecutively.

The employees urged HH the Prime Minister Sheikh Jaber Al-Mubarak to intervene and ensure that justice is served, as financial packages Al-Humaidhi granted to some Kuwaiti employees and expatriates in the sector has worsened the problems between the syndicate and management. For his part, head of the syndicate Manal Al-Rashidi said many question marks have been raised over the statements of Finance Minister Anas Al-Saleh and PASS director Al-Humaidhi on the lack of any special merits in the sector, noting the syndicate will resort to legal action to retrieve employees’ financial rights. She stressed that “injustices of the management will be confronted by strict stances that raise the chances of efficient personnel abandoning the institute”.
