  We have warned Benali repeatedly not to download the workers Alba overworked and speed in finding alternative solutions to meet the shortfall in employment in all sections and open the field of employment, the existence of workers the contractor what is only a matter of a temporary solution and can not be relied upon entirely, and their loyalty and devotion to work will not be like loyalty factor that works a permanent contract in the company, especially when the worker is a shareholder in the company, his sense that he is different from acting like in the household.
  She also administrative leaders in the company fears of low levels of safety in the company, understand they have a direct responsibility during their domination of the workers to maintain their safety and return to their families safely, they are demanding better conditions of workers because they are the real wealth of the company and demanded that the union interest in the real lives of workers Alba who gave Balgali and precious in order to achieve production targets for this company.   As explained in administrative leaders that this year is one of the most difficult years that have passed in the history of the company were reducing the number of workers of 3080 workers to 2694 workers currently working in all sections and departments of the company, however, the rate of production and profit is a record high despite the low value metal.


  The result of the meeting on the petition of all workers in the company by the syndicate to the executive management to ask them to raise the level of safety in the company and strengthened between the workers and increase their awareness of and access to international regulations on safety and continually developed to reduce the accident time-consuming in order to preserve the lives of workers and company property.
