KUWAIT CITY, Aug 22: Several employees of the Airport Security Department at Kuwait International Airport recently stopped working for an hour in protest against the decision to change the shifting system from three working days and two days off to six working days and two days off, reports Al- Jarida daily quoting sources. Sources disclosed that the decision was taken after the employees demanded for recognition of their rights when Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Defense and acting Minister of Interior Sheikh Talal Al-Khaled approved the shift allowance for airport security inspectors.
Sources said the protest was aimed at delivering a message to the interior minister that their rights have repeatedly been disregarded, while the nature of their work changed without any official statement or instruction from the Civil Service Commission.
Sources added the department took action based on a verbal decision. Meanwhile, Kuwait Airways cabin crew exhibited their admirable professionalism and expertise in dealing with emergency situations for the second time this month, reports Al-Qabas daily.
