Arabtec labour dispute comes to an end

11 November 2007
Labourers working for the local Arabtec Construction have ended their strike and have agreed to return to work after they reached an agreement with the company’s management.

The agreement came after a week of negotiations that also involved officials from the Ministry of Labour, the UAE Contractors Association, the Dubai Police Headquarters and the Permanent Committee for Labour Affairs in the Emirate of Dubai.

It is understood that the labourers were demanding higher wages due to the declining value of the UAE dirham against the Indian rupee and other currencies.
