The union said that the KOC is not complying with the decisions of the Council of Ministers and the Civil Service Commission by Kuwaitizing all sectors of the state, especially the oil sector.

The union concluded its statement by warning that the recruitment of expatriate workers randomly and neglecting the competencies of the people of this country was one of the main reasons behind the comprehensive strike which the country witnessed three years ago
