Employees' rights

Chairman of the employees' syndicate at Kuwait Gulf Oil Company (KGOC) Faleh Hindi Al-Ajmi held the company's deputy CEO for financial and administrative affairs responsible for losing employees' rights. He added that the company's legal and administrative affairs staff have been unfair and lack the simplest principles of institutional work. Ajmi added that the syndicate had previously warned the deputy CEO of the bad performance of the legal and administrative affairs department, with which the syndicate tried to cooperate, but failed due to the department's inflexibility.
