As a company supplying materials for some of the most eye-catching construction projects, Dubai’s Premier Composite Technologies is winning global acclaim. The company, based in Dubai Investments Park, won widespread praise for its role in the construction of Apple’s new flagship headquarters in California, helping supply materials for the building’s 80-tonne space-age roof.

Its hundreds of staff, however, are facing hardship as wages continue to go unpaid just months after a previous financial crisis was seemingly resolved. A logistics supervisor organizing transportation at PCT has been forced to send his family home as he can no longer afford to support them in Abu Dhabi due to unpaid wages.

SD said he has been paid up to April but is still owed over two months’ salary, about Dh35,000. “We’ve not had an email to explain what the delay is, or when we will be paid. There are more than 1,400 people in the same position as me,” said SD, who lives in company accommodation.
