Saudi power workers strike

Several staff working for the Saudi Electricity Company (SEC) went on strike claiming they were underpaid and have not been made permanent employees despite two years continuous employment.

The staff are all young electrical engineering graduates and say their conditions of work are significantly worse than other established employees.

Abdalmaan Al-Sheikh, the company director, advised staff to “meet with me directly to discuss the problem” reminding them that “collective absence from work is an illegal action.”
