Ministry of Electricity and Water workers protest demanding recognition of rights and allowances.

KUWAIT CITY, Dec 11: A group of employees from the Ministry of Electricity, Water, and Renewable Energy initiated a sit-in on Monday within the ministry’s premises, advocating for their entitled allowances and rights. Emphasizing their labor in a challenging and hazardous environment, the workers declared their intent to persist in the sit-in until their rights were acknowledged. Eng. Hassan Al-Roudhan, the General Coordinator of the Ministry of Electricity and Water Workers’ Association, clarified that their demands are not centered on financial increments but rather on the rightful entitlements of ministry personnel. Al-Roudhan expressed concern about inaccurate information provided to the Ministry of Health, misrepresenting the nature of the employee’s duties as sole office or supervisory work. He criticized the Ministry’s leadership for disseminating misleading information to authorities through ineffective committees.

Al-Roudhan called for an end to the manipulation of the shift system, asserting that it undermines functional frameworks and contradicts the Ministry’s policy of developing its work system. He highlighted a disturbing trend within the Ministry of Electricity and Water, wherein the work environment is becoming increasingly inhospitable, potentially leading to a reduction in the number of national cadres and outsourcing of responsibilities to external companies. Al-Roudhan warned that some leaders within the ministry lack the vision to appreciate the contributions of national cadres, potentially precipitating a work crisis shortly.

Addressing concerns about an impending energy crisis, Al-Roudhan questioned the Minister’s proposed solutions and underscored the vital role played by the Ministry of Electricity and Water workers in providing essential services to all citizens across Kuwait. Despite their extensive efforts, exposure to challenging work conditions, and the risks of fires and explosions in certain stations, the workers feel a lack of recognition for their contributions from the ministry’s leadership.
