The National Assembly Speaker Ahmad Al-Saadoun submitted a bill concerning the Kuwaiti employees of the public sector with the aim of enhancing justice among the national workers at different ministries, public institutions and subsidiaries.
Al-Saadoun said it was discovered that some workers who are appointed according to special job regulations obtain much higher salaries than their counterparts who are appointed according to the Civil Services Council’s regulations.
He affirmed that the Council of Ministers will issue the executive regulations of the bill after consulting with the Civil Service Commission (CSC) within three months of ratifying the bill, adding that the budget needed for this bill will be covered by the National Reserve Fund.
According to article 1 of the bill, the Kuwaiti public sector workers covered by the regulations of the Civil Service Council will obtain salaries based on the average salary of their colleagues who are appointed according to special job regulations.
