However, several individuals approached the labor relations department where they were met by an official of the department who explained the steps they need to take to receive their rights in a legal manner.
She indicated that the authority will coordinate with Ministry of Interior regarding the labor demonstrations in order for the authority to intervene in calming the situation and finding appropriate solutions.

During the meeting, they discussed about the inspection procedures, the need to allot new work guidelines, intensify inspection campaigns, implement the market law strictly and implement a control mechanism for apprehending the violators in the labor market.
