BABCO workers protest

On the 6 February 2010, hundreds of BABCO workers protested with

their families opposite the refinery gate against the privatization of the company, and against what they called discrimination against local workers in favour of foreigners, with regards to incentives, wages and promotions. The protestors carried banners which read ‘No to discrimination between national and foreign workers’ and ‘No to discrimination between oil company workers’. This protest is the fourth of its kind in the hope that it will help solve existing problems between the BABCO Union and the Board of Directors.
