Kuwait Times - - LOCAL - By Me­shaal Al-Enezi

KUWAIT: Deputy Chair­man of Kuwait Air­ways and its sub­sidiary com­pa­nies’ em­ploy­ees syn­di­cate, Cap­tain Fuad Ashour Ab­bas, strongly crit­i­cized what he de­scribed as fri­vol­ity and fu­til­ity in deal­ing with the fate of Kuwait Air­ways em­ploy­ees and pi­lots in a way that wastes con­sid­er­able pub­lic funds.

Ab­bas also ac­cused the for­mer par­lia­ment of let­ting down Kuwait Air­ways’ pi­lots, as trans­fer­ring pi­lots and em­ploy­ees to some min­istries was done re­gard­less of the ar­ti­cles and clauses stated in law num­ber 6/2008, which con­di­tions turn­ing Kuwait Air­ways into a share­hold­ing com­pany to do so. In ad­di­tion, Ab­bas said that the pub­lic sec­tor had no suit­able va­can­cies for the trans­ferred em­ploy­ees and that they had been re­placed by nonKuwaiti staff. He also said that many of the pi­lots’ rights were lost in the process.
