Bahrain workers in limbo over unpaid salaries

Manama : Several employees of a company in Zinj are struggling to make ends meet, as they haven’t been paid salary for months. Unpaid bills, especially electricity, have made the situation further worse as the employees are also now forced to work in extremely difficult conditions.

“The company in Zinj has been operating without electricity for days now,” a person, who wishes not to be named, told DT News.

The incident, according to the person familiar with the matter, is also the second in the recent past, where the company has failed to make timely payments.

“Moreover the employees haven’t received their salary for almost three months now,” the source said.

DT News approached the management for their comments on the issue. So far, we haven’t received any communication from them.

In a similar incident, earlier this month, it was revealed by the General Federation of Bahrain Trade Unions (GFBTU) that four major companies in the Kingdom have failed to pay their employees for months.

At that time, GFBTU Assistant Secretary for international relations told DT News over 100 employees were struggling without salary for the past 10 months.
