Labor Min. says no illegal action to be taken against oil strike
Minister of Social Affairs and Labor and State Minister for Planning and Development Hind Al-Sabeeh vowed on Tuesday that no illegal action would be taken against a three-day oil strike.
 
She told a news conference that an ad hoc committee comprising legal teams from the Cabinet, Fatwa and Legislation Department and Public Authority for Manpower would not take any decision unless it was absolutely legal.
 
In this context, the minister added that the State of Kuwait had signed international conventions pertinent to trade unions, but it had voiced reservations at the right to strike.
 
Earlier in the day, the Oil Sector's Spokesman Sheikh Talal Al-Khaled announced that Kuwaiti oil facilities' average daily production has surged to 1.5 million barrel.
 
Kuwait Oil Company (KOC) is racing against time to resume operation of oil collection centers No. 21 and 24 to fully resume the state's oil and gas production, Sheikh Talal said in a press statement.
 
He assured that Kuwait Petroleum Corporation's marketing sector has also been able to fulfil its exporting commitments without any delay or rescheduling of loading time.
 
Sheikh Talal added that operations in Petrochemical Industries Company and Kuwait Oil Tanker Company are proceeding normally.
 
Oil sector laborers started Sunday a strike in protest against proposed austerity measures on the background of the sharp drop in oil prices.
