If you aren’t in the loop, people working for KPC/KOC aren’t happy with the benefit and price cuts due to the oil price drastically going down. A big portion of staff will be on strike starting from today until they reach an agreement with management. I’m guessing this will be one of the most costly strikes Kuwait will witness.
I asked both my cousins that work for KPC if they will take part in the strike and both of them said they won’t, however, a lot will, especially high positions. The company has already taken measures to send national guards to the oil units to try to match supply with demand.
