Pay­roll strate­gic al­ter­na­tive to im­prove, not to cut, wages: Omair

Kuwait Times - - LOCAL -

KUWAIT: The pay­roll strate­gic al­ter­na­tive project has not been set to cut wages but to im­prove low salaries, for­mer oil min­is­ter Dr Ali Al-Omair said. The project is for the good of all, said Omair, who was yes­ter­day as­signed with the Min­istry of Pub­lic Works’ port­fo­lio to carry along with the Min­istry of State for Na­tional As­sem­bly Af­fairs. He was speak­ing on the side­lines of the Arab Fed­er­a­tion of Petroleum, Mines and Chem­i­cal Work­ers con­fer­ence that kicked off here on Sun­day and lasts for five days. He added that the project is now at the Na­tional As­sem­bly’s Hu­man Re­sources Com­mit­tee.

Omair stressed state’s sup­port to the syn­di­cate move­ment in Kuwait. Mean­while, the min­is­ter expects pos­i­tive out­come of the com­ing meet­ing of the Or­ga­ni­za­tion of Petroleum Ex­port­ing Coun­tries (OPEC), Vi­enna 4 De­cem­ber, to re­flect sta­bil­ity on the mar­kets, which is for the good of ex­porters and im­porters. Ac­cord­ing to Omair, all pro­pos­als on cut­ting OPEC crude prices are be­ing stud­ied, and will be dis­cussed in Vi­enna. He re­it­er­ated full com­mit­ment to any de­ci­sion to be made by OPEC. —KUNA
