Night hours for workers
Monday 30 Jun, 2008 for 7DAYS
Contractors are planning additional working hours to compensate for time lost during the midday breaks which starts from tomorrow. An official from the UAE Contractors Association said that companies might opt for extra work hours to finish the projects on time.
“Night schedules are much better than the morning hours because of the heat. Contractors, like others, are concerned about the health of the workers and it is a good move by the Ministry of Labour to have midday break,” said Dr Imad Al Jamal, vice-chairman of the technical committee of the UAE contractors Association.
Earlier this month, Ministry of Labour announced hat construction workers will get a break from 12.30pm to 3pm from July 1. The break period will continue till August 31.
