The WFTU extends solidarity to the Kuwaiti oil-workers on strike

The World Federation of Trade Unions expresses its solidarity to the oil-workers in Kuwait who have started an on-going strike in the main national state-owned company Kuwait Petroleum Corporation since Sunday the 17th of April, 2016.

The oil-workers ask for the reinstatement of their rights and increase in their salaries against the new labour law of the Government that suppresses all public workers rights and salaries.

The WFTU asks the Government of Kuwait to respect the right of all public sector workers and implement the demands of the oil-workers.
