Oil worker protests in Oman have continued, despite a crackdown and efforts by the Sultanate’s Shura Council to negotiate a settlement.
Hundreds of oil workers went on strike in May, followed by a walkout and protests by employees of private contractors in June.
Four companies in Nimr and in other places were affected by the previous strikes, including Qarn al Alam.
Oil workers were demand a basic wage of AED 3,804 a month, plus health coverage, risk compensation and pension rights. Reuters reports that more than 30 activists remain in detention after recent strikes.
