KUWAIT CITY, June 3: Kuwait Union of Domestic Labor Offices (KUDLO) Chairman Khalid Al-Dakhnan said the union’s delegation that is currently in Ethiopia has signed the sub-agreement derived from the main agreement on regulating the recruitment of Ethiopian domestic workers to Kuwait, which was previously suspended as per the decision of the Ethiopian Ministry of Labor, reports Al-Jarida daily. Al-Dakhnan confirmed that an agreement has been reached about the salary of the worker — KD90 including all the privileges stipulated in Kuwaiti law number 68/2015 like the indemnity, leave days and others.

He expects the arrival of Ethiopian domestic workers soon, especially after the recent decision allowing the issuance of visas for foreigners. He said the signed sub-agreement will be sent to the Ethiopian Embassy in Kuwait for referral to the labor attaché to take the necessary action. He stated that the recruitment of domestic workers will be done online; that is, after filling up the job order. He added the domestic labor offices will be given special codes to deal directly with the Ethiopian Ministry of Labor.

On the other hand, Managing Director and consultant of union Abdulaziz Al- Ali said the agreement stipulates regulations and conditions; such as the need for the workers to complete a 21-day training course in their country supervised by the Ethiopian Ministry of Labor. He revealed any worker who exhibits violent or aggressive behavior will be rejected before coming to Kuwait. He stressed that the Ethiopian workers will contribute to addressing the domestic labor shortage resulting from the ban on workers from the Philippines. He is hoping for the settlement of disputes soon to resume the recruitment of workers from the Philippines.
