Oil unions, government still disagree on raises
April 27, 2016, 9:50 am

A meeting held between oil unions’ representatives and a governmental committee lasted until late hours of Monday evening due to continued disputes over employees’ annual salary increase, Government sources said. Deputy Premier, Finance Minister and Acting Finance Minister Anas Al-Saleh, as well as Kuwait Petroleum Corporation (KPC) CEO Nizar Al-Adsani attended the meeting. The sources said KPC is holding to its stance to reduce the annual raise on the basic salary to 5 percent, while the unions wants it to remain at 7.5 percent. In case no agreement is reached then the issue will be sent to Fatwa and Legislation Department, according to the sources.
