The head of the volunteer team for workers in the oil sector, Salem Al-Ajmi, announced that the team is the legitimate representative of workers in the private oil sector in the absence of a union board of directors to defend their rights and just demands.

In statements to Al-Anba, Al-Ajmi called on the government to intervene urgently and defuse the crisis before the start of a new phase of escalation in order to obtain all the rights of workers in the private oil sector, stressing that their number exceeds 14,000 citizens who work without clear rights under labor laws in the private sector.

He stressed they must be subject to labor laws in the oil sector, according to Law 28 of 1969, which grants all rights to private oil workers, and equated them with workers in the government oil sector, but unfortunately, the law is not literally applied to them.

He stressed that the volunteer team will not allow the rights of the Kuwaiti people working in the private oil sector to be lost in vain despite the presence of final judicial rulings, and called on members of the National Assembly to intervene to grant the Kuwaiti employees in the private oil sector their just rights before things escalate.

He concluded by saying, “A new phase of escalation will begin soon, beginning with the sit-in, which is something we do not want, but we will never abandon our just rights.”
