Mr Ryder later met with trade union heads from several companies including former Shura Council member and ex-GFBTU secretary-general Abdulghaffar Abdulhussain.
They include 223 from Alba, 243 from Bapco and 136 workers each from APM Terminals and Batelco. Other sacked staff include 90 from Gulf Air, 33 from Asry, 36 from Banagas and 49 from Bahrain Airport Services.
Ministries and companies in private sector dismissed staff for allegedly skipping work to take part in anti-government protests called by GFBTU and unjustified absenteeism.
His Royal Highness Prime Minister Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa ordered a crackdown on absentee public sector workers last month.
Following the directives, several ministries formed investigation committees or commissions of inquiry to take action against staff violating Civil Service Bureau rules.
