Public Post Authority strike comes to swift end after 1 day
Minister of Telecommunication and Technology Doctor Ahmed Obaid Bin Daghr ordered the resignation of Abdulatif Abu Ghanim, director of the Public Post Authority, following the employees’ protests, after a presidential decree appoints a new director.
Sahar Al-Absi of the Female Post Employers’ Syndicate said the employees held a strike demanding nature-of-work allowance similar to the Public Telecommunication Corporation’s employees, and their demands were met.
Faiz Saif, Technical Affairs’ manager in the authority, said, “The minister’s intervention ended the disagreements in the authority and then the syndicate ended the strike, and the employers started working again.”
After finishing work last week, four employees were beaten at the external door of the authority at the hands of the authority’s security forces and were taken to prison.
