Union demands better treatment of Kuwait Airways employees
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addition, Abbas said that the public sector had no suitable vacancies for the transferred employees and that they had been replaced by nonKuwaiti staff.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.
The Cabinet issued a decision yesterday to grant the Municipal Council’s President the degree of minister.
