BAHRAIN: Wrongfully sacked employees protest at the MOL ! | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

There hasn't been any real or tangible reforms in Bahrain.  The same prejudice and sectarian exclusions persist.  Political prisoners remain in prisons, and illegally fired workers are still without employment!

1674 or 179? Bahrain’s Continuing Labour Disputes

1674 or 179? Bahrain’s Continuing Labour Disputes | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

In its bid to get the F1, Bahrain has been keen to project the image that it is implementing the recommendations set out in the Bahrain Independent Commission of Inquiry report. One such recommendation involves addressing the issue of employees (both public and private) who have been dismissed for exercising their right to free speech/assembly.

[BICI recommends reinstatement, Hamad promises to implement reforms, but still these good people are without their jobs!  WHY?!

 

Why does this regime persecute those who express their political views?  Why does it persecute entire families, entire sects?]

Bahrain: Gulfair Airline dismissed and arrested Captain Salah Al shayeb": ongoing Case!

Bahrain: Gulfair Airline dismissed and arrested Captain Salah Al shayeb":  ongoing Case! | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

Case of a Gulf Air employee, Captain Salah Alshayeb and how he got dismissed and later arrested and imprisoned. He was one of +200 employees that

Gulf Air have violated their labor and human rights.

 

Violations began with a malicious review board on 14/04/2011 accusing him with several things like going on strike and inciting others to strike and
assaulting the Bahraini government symbols. But despite the fact that no evidence was presented to him and company attendance records were enough
to close the case but obviously the decision has already been made and Gulf Air decided to dismiss him anyway!

On 07/05/2011 his house was raided at dawn by masked personal and taken to an unknown location to spend 3 months in detention half of the period in
solitary confinement in the basement of the national security apparatus!. not to mention the insults and the derogatory treatment.

The reason for his arrest was for investigation on one of bahraini political and human rights activist Raoof Alshayeb living in exile who happened to be

his uncle!

one week before being released he was interrogated again, but in things other than reason for his arrest in preparation for release.
He was told after the interrogation by an NSA official that he would be released and can return to normal work and life.
But Gulf Air refused to reinstate him back and the reason given "security reservation by ministry of interior" although he was given a ((Certificate of Good Conduct)) after his release!.

Gulf Air HR and Legal Affairs kept on stalling during the sessions of the Ministry of Labor and the Court.

The latest innovations of Gulf Air lawyer at Court was that Captain Salah was absent from work during the period between may and august which
resulted in his dismissal, although he recieved the official termination letter on 17/04/2011!

I AM SURPRISED! how Gulf Air persists to this degree and flagrant disregard of the judiciary and the court by coming up with such nonsense.

Fired Bahrain Shiites demand jobs back

Fired Bahrain Shiites demand jobs back | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

DUBAI — Dozens of Bahraini Shiite employees fired over pro-democracy protests rallied on Wednesday demanding a return to work, a day after authorities said 181 would be reinstated.
Doctors, some contesting sentences of five to 15 years, nurses, teachers, oil and aluminium workers and civil servants gathered outside the labour ministry, an AFP correspondent said.
Many Shiite employees were either dismissed or suspended indefinitely in the wake of a brutal crackdown on a Shiite-led month-long protest in February and March.
According to Bahrain's labour union, 377 civil servants were dismissed, and 171 out of 449 suspended remained so. At the government-owned Alba aluminium company, 405 were suspended.
"They've dismissed the elite of this country," said consultant orthopaedic surgeon Ali Alekri, wearing his doctor's gown and carrying a Bahraini flag.
