KUWAIT CITY, Aug 12: The Workers Union of Kuwait Petroleum Corporation (KPC) has outrightly rejected the contents of the economic document, asserting the document negatively affects the livelihood of citizens in view of the difficult economic conditions that Kuwait and the world are going through in general, reports Al-Qabas daily.
The union pointed out the parliamentarians are required, now more than ever, to reject this document. It also urged the executive authority to set the example in rationalizing expenditures and stopping wastage in sections which neither affect the pockets of citizens nor entail additional burdens, since moving forward with this document is a historical fatal mistake for which the future generations will not forgive the present generation.
The union said some of the regulations and items mentioned in the document directly affect the income of the Kuwaiti workforce, such as freezing the annual allowance budget or charging them a percentage of the government’s contribution to the monthly deductions for the Public Institute for Social Security (PIFSS).
It warned that such reductions will affect the efficiency of all sectors of the State and will inevitably lead to a decline in their performance, which will reflect in the revenues of the State. The union affirmed it is closely following up the situation and focusing on the interest of the employees of KPC in order to protect their rights through legitimate methods.
