The sacked workers in Bahrain continue their protests in front of Ministry of Labour.
They published a statement after their 7th protest end today.
The full statement underneath:
Some of you have started to return to their work according to PM directives and CSB circular. However, we understand the PM decision to close the file of sacked workers as full reinstatement without delay. It is strange that CSB urge the sacking government institutions to reinstate where as it has to instruct them to do so. We also believe that other organizations than ministries like government authorities and councils should be included in this process as they under the umbrella of CSB.
We refuse to transfer non reinstated workers to courts as it is a waste of time. All workers should reinstated without and excuse. Some have tried to see the court and was given a date of the middle of 2012 to see his case. We know now that there are internal forces in ministries and companies who are stopping reinstatement regardless to the directives of the government.
We also refuse the plea of some government institutions that they only ended termed contracts not dismissed workers. We all know that all sacking process in this time were based on participation in the protests or freedom of expression. We call for full reinstatement and a legislation that ban any kind of discrimination at work as stated in convention 111 ratified by Bahrain in 2000.
Lastly we call to pay our right of unemployment pension. We call the minister of labor as the chairman of unemployment fund to pay our right. Any day pass without paying unemployment is a war of starving which we refuse regardless to reasons.
We repeat our demands. Unconditioned and dignified reinstatement of all sacked and suspended workers in both public and private sector. We refuse all unfair conditions imposed on reinstated workers like changing positions, nature of work. We will continue our movement by all llegitimate means till reinstatement of the last dismissed worker.
