Contractor bosses who mistreat their workers will be named and shamed by the UAE Ministry of Labour, according to an announcement made this week. It follows a month of strikes and protests by increasingly disgruntled site workers. For the first time, details of companies that abuse workers rights will be made public. According to the Ministry, there have been a total of eighteen strikes already this year, involving more than 10 000 workers. Last month the Ministry levied a fine against Al Hamed Development and Construction of Abu Dhabi for withholding salaries. The same firm was also banned from hiring foreign workers.
