KPC and its subsidiaries earnestly seek resolution to its differences with Kuwait's oil workers' union to avert any adverse effects on the national economy, spokesman for the Oil Sector Sheikh Talal Al-Khaled Al-Sabah said on Thursday. He said in a press statement that KPC has responded favorably to an invitation by the Deputy Director of the Public Authority for Manpower (PAM) Abdullah Al-Mutawtah to attend a meeting today to discuss with union representatives means of ending the dispute between them.
He further said that the oil workers' union did not show up for the meeting. Meanwhile, Kuwait Oil Tanker Co. assured the public that liquefied natural gas (LNG) cylinders used for cooking are plentifully available and there is no fear of disruption in its availability.
The assurance comes in view of the potential strike that has been called for by the oil workers' union for next Sunday after deadlock in the union's negotiations with the government regarding a number of grievances.
