Dubai – Workers demand dhs2 more
Workers blocked Sheikh Zayed Road and stalled traffic at rush hour yesterday morning demanding a two dirham rise in their daily wages. The labourers from Trans Emirate Construction claim they deserve dhs27 per day instead of the dhs25 that they are presently paid. More than 100 workers gathered on the road from Dubai to Abu Dhabi opposite Dubai Marina at around 8.30am.
An official with the Human Resource Department of Dubai police said that they asked the workers to make an official complaint instead of blocking the roads. “It is illegal to protest in this fashion. The workers can call the helpline number if they have complaints. We let the workers off with a warning but action will be taken if they repeat it,” said the official.
