Binladin workers’ salary issue resolved

JEDDAH: The Ministry of Labor has reached an agreement to resolve the problem of Saudi Binladin Group employees who have been protesting against salary delays.
The decision was taken at a meeting between representatives of the Ministry of Labor (MoL), Binladin group and police in Makkah recently, local media reported on Friday.
Around 2,000 engineers, management staff and workers have reportedly not been paid salaries for four months, leading to an agitation by them.
Khaled Aba Al Khiel, representative of the MoL in Makkah region, is following up on workers’ complaints and will take necessary measures to end the crisis, the report said, quoting sources.
Frustrated with the delay in payment of salaries, more than 1,000 workers protested outside the company headquarters last week.
The MoL signed a trilateral agreement, one of which allows worker to stay at hom until the salaries are paid by the company after deducting the period of absence.
The second option allows anyone who wants to leave the company can seek the settlement of dues and make the final exit. The third choice for workers and staff is that can have a sponsorship transfer.
